Whelp....He's Flyin'

We're pulling a fast one on you this week at 613 Avenue Create, and switching around weeks!  So you get Team B twice in a row!  Our twist to the Always Anything Goes Challenge this week is to include some doodling on your project.

Our sponsor this week is Melonheadz Illustrations.   I've adored Nikki's adorable images for some time now.   She has super cute bundles in her shop and she also offers freebies from time to time on her blog.  She also includes pre-colored versions of a lot of her images, so they're perfect for those SUPER fast last minute cards.  

Today I'm using "Flying Pig" in the pre-colored version.  (Freebie found here.)  I simple printed him out and then added some clear Stickles to his wings.

For the background, I cut a panel of white cardstock to fit the front of the card, and then sprayed it with one of my homemade mists in blue.  I wanted to deepen the color at the bottom of the panel, so I went in with a bit of Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  I used a bit of sponge to dab white paint "clouds" onto the panel, and then doodled some lines around them to create a bit more of a cartoon-y cloud look.  I added the dashed line leading to where I was going to position the pig, and then added my handwritten sentiment (and, yes, again with my warped humor!).  When I was ready to assemble, I decided the background was too boxy, so I took my craft knife and cut a wavy edge to the panel.  Once I attached the panel to the card, I added a striped border around the outside, and some dots to the panel for a bit more interest.

The inside was left SUPER simple with a handwritten sentiment and wavy border drawn onto the page.

Be sure to stop on by 613 Avenue Create and see my teamies cute doodles!  We hope to have you join us this week!
