So--"playing" some helps get my mind off the pain! And, since my daughter-in-law just went through two dental implants yesterday, I wanted to send her some get well wishes. In my earlier post-I mentioned Roberta of Prairie Fairy's Wobble-head card. I did it! I used a picture of my step son for her "nurse", and one of my hubby for my "nurse". Here's how it came out:
I put Roberta's "Dr. Lewis" image (although I was tempted to use "Nurse Gillian!) in Publisher
and then cropped off his head.
Then I put it in a second time and cropped just his hat.
Then I cropped a photo of Tommy and Brook and sized it so it was larger than the body to give it that cartoon look-and fixed the hat to fit the top of their head...cut, colored, popped and pasted!
Since this was an easel card, I simply scanned the image of my hubby and cut it out for the inside.
The wobble-head gizmo is SUPER TECHNICAL.
You MUST have an engineering degree to even attempt this!
I took thin wire, wrapped it around a pencil 4-5 times, hot glued the ends to two ovals I punched out and
then attached those to the card base and Tommy's head image!
Easy-peasy! And yes, it wobbles nicely (trick is--thin wire!)
Time for lunch and some meds.
Back to the deck to recuperate some more.
Until next time, happy stamping and scrapping!
