This card was made with two of my favorite critters from Stamps by Judith.  They were stamped in VersaMark, embossed in black, and then colored with watercolor pencils.  The sentiment is from Art Impressions and stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.   The dies are from My Favorite Things.  I used the stitched rectangle die for the sentiment, the stitched rectangle frame and the grassy edges die.

MFT Sketch Challenge 262


This card is for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 262.  For this card I used the Polynesian Paradise stamp set and colored the image with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers.  The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with black embossing powder.  I used dies for the background ’tiles’ from the Die-namics Blueprints 13.  The white background was cut from the MFT stitched rectangles dies.  I can’t remember where the flower dies are from. Added some rhinestones for a little bling.
