Happy Sunday! It's been over a month since I've last posted--where does the time go?!
About 15 years ago, I lived in Ft. Worth, Texas. While I never saw any armadillos in Ft. Worth, I saw more than I could count on a few cross-state treks I made through west Texas. When I saw there was an armadillo in Hero Art's Menagerie digital set, I had to buy it. Here's what I came up with:
Even my husband laughed. All of the images are digital. I started off with the Hero Arts Modern Love stamps:
Using Photoshop, I edited out the "O" from the L*O*V*E. Then, I replaced the "O" with one of the dangling hearts. I changed the colors, too. Then, I added the armadillos from the Menagerie set, paper pieced them, and shaded them with ink. I love these little guys! Here's a close-up:
Once I got done paper piecing, I thought it was missing something. I wanted to add a bow but didn't have one that size. Then, I realized I could use the kite tail from the My Favorite Things kite die. It looks a little wedding-ish, but I'm going to use it for Valentine's Day. I also wanted to join in on the Hero Arts challenge this month.
I'm so sorry for being so absent from blogland. I feel bad that I haven't made the rounds. I miss everyone!
Thanks for looking!
