Honest, I Didn't Burn the Beer Digital Collage

vintage art with VLV stamp and old magazine ad

VLVS stamp 12509

When I first saw this stamp from  Viva Las VegaStamps!, I had about 10 caption ideas. I love working with VLVS stamps because they have the same sense of humor as I do and loads of vintage images.

The above artwork is just one of those many ideas.

Here's the backstory: The wife is getting ready for her first party after her marriage. She is in her brand new kitchen, but doesn't have a clue how to cook!!! She has burnt everything and her new husband walks in...all she could think was, "Honest, I didn't burn the beer!!!"

This is a digital collage. I love digital collage because I can use the artwork as a card, party invitation or even a work of art. I scanned the stamped image, colorized it and created the collage in PhotoShop. Here she is colorized:

Count me in as 1 of the 125 following your blog--I couldn't get the url to work so added it on my google reader. Would love to see samples of using the steampunk stamps. Meanwhile, I'll try not to burn any beer--such a waste of good beer!
