Meet George Jetson


If the Jetson's had a cat, don't you think Sprinkle would be it? And she would be buzzing around in a little spaceship just like this one! Remember that happy little buzzing sound all the vehicles used to make? I swear that sound has been buzzing in my head the entire time I've been making this card (along with the theme song which is now in YOUR head I'm betting....LOL)!
I made this for Julee's Mojo Monday sketch challenge over on her blog. I really like how this card turned out even though for the life of me, I couldn't figure out what embellishment to use in the lower right hand corner of the main image. Nothing that I have seemed to fit. If you can think of anything that you would do, let me know as I'm open to ideas.
I LOVE how the Linograph background turned out! I stamped the background with Craft Black and then embossed with some Hologram Highlights embossing powder. It is so sparkly IRL! I cut the background into three panels and mounted on a Soft Sky piece. I then took some Soft Sky stitched ribbon and attached three Pewter Build-a-Brads evenly down the side. The inside of the brad uses a rub-on from the Eastern Eclectic pack from SU.
For the main image, I stamped Little Sprinkle with Black Staz-On on Shimmery White cardstock. I then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the Small Ship in Basic Grey. I colored Sprinkle in with my Copic Spica glitter pens and then outlined with a very light grey Copic marker to make her pop a little more. I then used a Basic Black marker to ink up just the vapor trail from Love Rocket (which was also colored in with my Copic Spica glitter pens). I used my corner rounder on two opposite corners and then used my Perfect Layers tool to make to 1/16th inch mats with Basic Black and Soft Sky. The main image was then added to the Linograph background with dimensionals. The entire panel was then added to a Blue Bayou card base.
Have a wonderful Sunday! It is cold and snowing in Colorado Springs (perfect stamping weather)!

LOL!! Sprinkle would DEFINITELY be the Jetsons' cat!! For your main image, how about stamping a sentiment going sideways up and down the right-hand side of the panel? Have a great Sunday :)

Adorable, Linda! I'll be singing the Jetsons song all day now! LOL! I love Linograph - I was just looking at it collecting dust on my shelf yesterday thinking I out to pull it out. :)
