Waltzingmouse Stamps Sept Preview - Day 2

Welcome to day two of the Waltzingmouse Stamps previews for September! Aren't the sets you've seen fabulous so far? Any favorites so far?

Before I get started, I just wanted to remind you all to check out Claire, Anya, Bonnie, Carly, Jennifer, Julia, Laurie, Lisa, Lynn, and Mona, who all have fabulous projects to share with you!

Today I have a fun little set called Half Pint Heros. There's a fun set of little faces you can pick from -- and fun images you can put them in. I let my husband pick which little "boy" to pop inside the sub and this is the one he chose.

Well, when I first saw the sub, I decided I wanted to make a yellow submarine. While I was making this song, I kept singing "We all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine... " And I used a silver gel pen to add some metallic aspects to the sub.

To make it appear more fun, I did cut out the windows and placed some acrylic behind the sub to give it a window look. It's not exactly showing up in the photos well... The small windows work perfectly with the crop-a-dile punch sizes.
