Little C's Weekly Challenge #14 - Aloha Hanna

Hi Everyone!! Oh, my gosh. . .I totally forgot it was Tuesday! Tuesday is the start of Jen's Litttle C's Weekly Challenge #14!! Sorry Jen! What's this week challenge? Well, the challenge is to follow the sketch below and you cannot use any sentiment on your card! Okay simple enough. . .therefore, I expect all of you to play along!! LOL! Be sure to stop by Jen's store Little C's Stamps n' Things and be sure to check out the Little C's blog site for more details of this challenge. Jen is also having a major sale going on . . . 35% off your total purchase! Whoohoo!



I purchased this really cute Hanna stamp set from Little C's Stamps n' Things.


Okay. . .while coloring Hanna's skirt, I noticed something veeeeerry peculiar about it. I was like "wait a minute. . .Hanna's underwear and upper thighs are showing!" No way! Yup! Now that's indecent.

So. . .I decided to color her underwear and thighs green because well, I'm sorry but no hoochie Hanna on my blog! LOL! Sorry but my blog is a kid friendly blog. . .we can't have no peek-a-boo underwear showing.

Besides, Hanna comes from a decent Hawaiian home. . .what would her mother think, huh! Seriously, in real life, this wouldn't happen. The vast majority of hula dancers in Hawaii are kids and can you imagine if their underwear were showing. Actually, with this type of grass skirts, there would be an inner lining under the skirt so there's no way your underwear would show.


I showed my husband the stamp and told him that Hanna's underwear is showing and he was like "it's a stamp!!" I know it's a stamp. . .duhhh! I was like "do you think a man designed this particular Hanna?" LOL!! My poor husband thinks I always think of the weirdest things!!


Oh, another thing. . .this particular Hanna stamp set comes with a cute pig image and initially, I was going to use it but then I looked at it and decided not to. Why? Well. . .we all know what a pig at a luau means, right? Yup. . . .even if' it's a cute pig. . .well, it's a dead pig! Argggghhhh!!


You know I'm just kidding around. This is a lovely stamp set! It was really fun to create a card with it because I'm from Hawaii!!

Just a little info about my card. . .I colored Hanna and the background with my Copic markers. I added the small flower embellishments by Jolee by You and I drew in the stems and leaves

I added the Prima flowers to follow the sketch and added micro beads to the center.

I don't know if you can see it but the ribbon has a little bit of silver sparkles.

Teri said...

Hi maria! haha! Last week when I used this Hula Hanna, I colored it all green assuming that it was just her hula skirt and then I looked at other sites and noticed that they colored and defined her underwear! I couldn't even follow where her legs were. It's a cute stamp though and I never thought about the pig!

Jen said...
