Party Time

It's nearly time for the Muse Card Challenge to close again.
 I love the inspiration provided by Vicki
this week

Love the individually cut critters and the circle and stripe so I decided to go with those features and add to my card in my own way.

I used acetate to mask the card front and added the circle as a background of pale green and blue like a background with Distress Ink in very soft colours and a couple of flicks of water just because.

I Copic coloured the three critters from Purple Onion, then fussy cut them, added some Wink of Stella to the ribbon on the present but you cant see it here. I also go around the edges of the outline where I have cut with a black Copic to  re-define the stamping.

I added a double strip of washi gold foil hearts on the side, then attached the critters so they look like the front two are holding hands. I cut a piece of wood look pattern paper for the post in the penguins hand, die cut the banner from green vellum and the sentiment from white card stock. All done and I think its so cute, its just what I wanted.

I wish I had found time earlier as its a great design and I can see this looking fantastic with so many of my stamp sets. Hopefully I will remember. Thanks vicki for the inspiration.


without the topping this time
