I miss Bugs and his pals, Yosemite Sam, the Tasmanian Devil, the Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote--I always rooted for him--and all those other Looney Toons characters who gave me, and eventually, my sons, such wonderful moments of joyful laughter.
My sons and I still know dialogs from our favourite Bugs cartoons by heart. If that says something about us, I hope it's positive.
Apparently, a lot of people learned to like classical music through episodes such as, "What's Opera, Doc?", and the masterful imitation of a Wagner opera, in which Elmer Fudd sings "Kill the Wabbit." The cartoons which now haunt the Saturday morning TV channels are, for me, sad substitutes for Looney Tunes.
This ATC will be entered in the "Anything Goes" part of the two challenges on Art With No Boundaries. Here's how I put the penguins in the desert:
Penguins stamped with SU Basic Black and masked (unfortunately, there's no identity on this unmounted stamp),
Sand (All Night Media) stamped with SU Creamy Caramel, then sponged with SU Marigold Morning,
Sky sponged with SU Marigold Morning,
¾" circle punched (SU) from sticky note for sun, then
Sky sponged again with SU Tangerine Tango.
I hope you don't make any wrong turns today, but if you do, just stop and ask for directions.
