MC Feb/15 - Oh My Sex In A Suit - HB

 It's extremely rare I play on an image like this... but I just couldn't resist. A friend pointed me in the direction of this Cricut cartridge "Suburbia" and I drooled... Sheesh

I cut him out of white cardstock and then painted with Black dauber acrylic paint. I added 3 melted bead buttons I made a while back from a package of cheap Michael's  plastic beads. They are a clear iridescent.

I side folded my white card (5"w x 7"h). Masked off about a 2" strip on the left side with post it notes and inked up an Impression Obsession CAC stamp "Brick" using Distress mini pads - all over with Antique Linen", then swiped a bit of "Burlap" and then a bit of "Black Soot", misted with water and stamped, moving the stamp to fill the whole side edge. Dried

Die cut the grass (Cheery Lynn) from white cardstock and painted with various green daubers. Glued down a double layer.

Stamped the text (Just Rite "Times New Roman") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Dry embossed the upper right hand corner using Spellbinders "Brick/Woodgrain" embossing folder.

Adhered my guy!!! oh my... ROFL

On the inside, stamped the upper text ("Just Rite "Curlz") with the black. Then stamped the "Happy Birthday" (Quietfire Design - "Let them Eat Cake" 4 pce set) also using the black and clear embossed.

Masked off about 2" again and inked and stamped the brick stamp as the front.

Hope whichever girlfriend I send this too will have as much pleasure ogling this cutie...
