Say Hello to "Smiley"

I mentioned in the previous post that I had used a stamp from TSQ as an incentive to get ALL the LOs done in the SBT50 CC. & yesterday I got a chance to play with my new what better way to show him off than in his very own ATC. This also happens to be my entry for this month`s great ALPHABET theme over at INKURABLE STAMPERS, where every month Sarah has some great prizes up for grabs, & all you have to do is follow the set theme. The first image is a scan, but as always, it`s hard to see the dimentional details in a scan, so I`ve also included some photos...He is very cute, don`t you think?

I used my first ever UM alphas, a set that`s been with me for so long, I can`t even remember where I got it from LOL. It is a Leave Memories "Our Baby" UM red rubber plate, which I have mounted onto EZimount & cut up (90+ letters in a mix of UC & LC)
I started off by stamping a random arrangement of the "QUIRKY" letters for the b`ground using the LM stamps, gold ink & gold EP. I then stamped "Smiley" from Stampotique (from TSQ) using Versafine Onyx black ink & clear EP. I then stamped a second "Smiley" onto a scrap of same colour card, using the same technique, & I "painted" his face & hands with bleach, & added highlights with my white Signo pen.
I then stuck him down using DSfoam tape.
For the mounted letters spelling out "QUIRKY" I`ve used my newest alpha purchase, a set from Studio G (series 15) using red, yellow & purple Stazon ink onto fawn coloured BB cs, & his tie is a bow from a Cuttlebug die set (Springtime? I think) & it`s covered with KG.
On a very different note, I just noticed I have two new followers, thank you, it`s nice to know that I`m not just talking to myself LOL. & while I think of it, I haven`t had any comments over HERE : ( I know the photos look big, but they are ATC-sized ATCs LOL, maybe I`ll change the post slightly... Well, if you`ve read through this I thank you for your time & hope you`ll be back, stay inky & CREATE something : )
