Day THREE! Clear Dollar Stamps

Yip-ee!  It's day three of the Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks and today I have "The Measure a Man" to share with you.  It's a fun masculine vintage set full of humor.   You will find the full stamp sheet on Clearly iStamp, the blog for Clear Dollar Stamps, and here is the blog list for today's sneak peeks:

The Measure of a Man

Hand Stamped Label

Merry Christmas 3 (sentiment)
You are Special (sentiment)

So here we go with my "The Measure of a Man" card creations.  I just love the old time electronics.  Who could resist the coolness of an old time radio and that funky television?  I know I couldn't.  Here I used two different techniques with the main images.  The radio I colored with Prismacolor Pencils and then blended with odorless mineral spirits and with the bottom card I paper pieced the TV and highlighted it with a Copic Marker.   I hope both cards make you smile!



Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting me.  Today is going to be a busy one for us.  I have to get some work done for my job and then my Mother-in-law is coming for the afternoon and evening.  I've put off picking up the clutter until I know for sure that she's coming over.  So early afternoon me and my three year old daughter will be making that mad dash at putting away her toys that are she's stung all over the house while I've been working.  :-)  I just know it's gonna be a great day! 

Smiles,
~Nancy
