My goodness I'm back on that last minute lurk again. I saw the Muse challenge done by Kim Higgins this week and its so cute:
and I had so many thoughts and ideas during thawed but of course life got in the way and then I started the card then it was dinner time then it was time to take Elysha for a walk then I looked at the time and I had two hours to go and I thought I better do something. So all the many ideas had to come down to one idea as I hadn't coloured half of what I wanted to colour.
I loved the die cut circles and had just bought these brilliant Poppy-stamps circle dies with the stitches on the cut out circle and the area around the circle. They also come in a good variety of sizes as you can see these ones are quite small but not the smallest. I was inspired by the idea of circles, the light partial colour blending and including little cakes and the sweet sentiment.
I have kept my circles whole as the circle die is smaller. I don't have any food stamps that are animated so I used cakes and a critter, well a cute little hippo. This set is another NBUS MFT
Happy Hippo Birthday set. I don't have the dies but the Scan 'N' Cut does a brilliant job of cutting even the smallest little cupcakes, party hats and stars.
I coloured everything with copics, the balloons I daubed over with the colourless blender to remove colour for a cool look. the backgrounds of the circles I did with Distress Inks.
I added lots of Wink of Stella to the cake and cupcakes and balloons but you can only really see it on the balloons so you will have to trust me when I say this card does truly sparkle. I then added the top panel carefully.
I fiddled around with a 'Smile' die, then a wooden 'smile' then saw these little pink and white and gold sticker buttons and they really do look good though they don't look much here. 'Hello sweet love' I think thats so sweet. but it does look small so I may end up moving it, changing it, just not sure at the moment, too many circles maybe???
But anyway its time to add the card to the challenge before time runs out.
Stamp set and Die set
Perfect card for anything goes.
thank you so much for coming to have a look. I hope you come again soon.
