"Time spent with friends is time well spent" is the sentiment I made for this card, and I really believe it to be true. These little cuties are in the latest digi release by CC Designs, available at All That Scraps tomorrow. This is my second post for today, the first (here) uses a different image from the same release; You can see more cuteness on the ATS Blog with the fabulous offerings from my talented teamies!
This scene uses two of the stamps, Ladybug Monkey and Caterpillar Monkey, I added a few extra toadstools by cropping one of the images down and flipping it (them??). I just thought these little guys looked like they were friends, or maybe brothers, kicking back and sharing some quality time together. The font I used for my computer generated sentiment is even called BF Angels (if you look closely, those little red squiggles are in fact angels, coot!)
I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash this time, turning it 90 degrees. The new stash on the card is the stamps and that lovely spotty organza ribbon. The Crafty Pad has "Something New" as its challenge theme so I'm in there for the same reason. The papers are from DCWV, the Animal Crackers 8" stack, I've had it for ages but this is the first time I've used it. The photo inspiration comes from Cupcake Inspirations, I am happy to say my card is inspired by this photo in so many more ways than just colour: look at those toadstools, ladybugs and caterpillars!! Just look at those cupcakes too, WOW!!
Sweet Stampin' has Things With Wings as its challenge this time, so I'm entering my little ladybug there. Crafts 4 Eternity has "Embellishments beginning with R", including red; my Red Ribbon will get me in there, even if the Red card I used for matting doesn't :-)
Everything is popped up on foam dots, I DO love my foam dots, lol.
The image was coloured with Copics (yay), my other project for this release (here) was coloured with Prismacolor pencils - which I am determined to master - but you can't beat Copics for an intense finish, IMO. Though, at least pencils don't run out at the most inconvenient moment, I am waiting for an order of refills for my Copics, but it can take three weeks for orders to get here so -Prismacolor to the rescue.
I finished the inside of the card in very simple fashion, such strong colours don't need much fuss! I had another card all ready to photograph, then dribbled glue right across it, ruining it. Well, trying to get the glue OFF is what really ruined it :-( Don't you hate that....s'pose I should have had it well away from my glue, so no one to blame but myself! I'm going to remake it and post it at a later date (I've recoloured the image, so it may be sooner than later)
