Doesn’t this rear view of Cupid just CRACK you up? (pun intended)
I grin every time I look at it.
The New Year baby got me thinking I could make Cupid. I started him while playing at my upline’s house but couldn’t remember what kind of hair Cupid had so Jenifer googled some images – lots to choose from –and it turns out Cupid can have lots of different hair styles.
However, one image had Cupid from behind.... So, of course, I had to try a version of that and well, it is all I hoped for.
Not that I spend a lot of time hoping to see cracks, but you know what I mean. The jokes and “suggestions” were flying around the room but I decided to keep this rated PG.
Body is wide oval reinserted into the butterfly punch - insert it from the opening so just one end of the oval is in the side of the butterfly – punch to get his rear cheeks. Then use the mat from the mat pack and an embossing tool to define the crack, add a little pink chalk to define his rear
Legs and arm are like the New Year Baby.
Butterfly wings - Iridescent Ice on the wings (suggested by my ‘glitter queen’ sideline, Eileen)
Snowflake and Heart to Heart for arrows
Word window for quiver
Scallop oval - re-punched to make smaller for hair
The first one I made didn't have the shiny wings or the chalk defined butt cheeks - and I positioned his legs a little differently - here they are side by side
I think I like the one on the left better for the leg out and the arrows spread - and the one on the right for the shiny wings and chalked rear. Even using punches, nothing ever comes out looking EXACTLY alike.
Are any of you in the Valentine round of the HotSwappingMamas group? This will be one of the 3D elements I make - sorry, one less surprise for you when your swaps arrive.
Dwarfs still on pause - I will get back to them but I am on Valentine mode for a few days. Got to get these ideas out to you if you are going to have time to use them!
