Hello there! I have a happy little card to share today that will [hopefully] bring a smile to your face on this Wednesday morning:)
While being totally constructive and not wasting any time by surfing around on some of my favorite stamp sites...I stumbled across the newest Paper Smooches Sparks challenge. And, yep---I was inspired by this photo to play along:
Here is my take on the inspiration photo:
Here is a close-up of the kangaroo. (My son told me that I did an ok job on it :) hee!
Stamps- A Little Lovin, Houndstooth, Geo Graphic (Paper Smooches); cardstock- white (Gina K Designs); patterned paper- Wayfarer mini print (Bazzill Basics Paper); Dies- cloud trio, fresh cut grass (Die-namics, My Favorite Things); baker's twine-blossom (The Twinery); ink-Memento tuxedo black, orchid pastel, yellow citrus, blue lagoon (Cat's Eye Chalk ink- Colorbok); Copic markers; felt- Chartruse (Papertrey Ink); sewing machine; Zapdots (Helmar); ribbon- chevron blue (May Arts).
I was inspired by the fun colors and textures in the photo and I wanted to make a spring-ish card because of the bunnies. I decided to use the kangaroo and sentiment from A Little Lovin (cause I love them!) and built a Spring scene using them.
I incorporated some felt to get the texture in from the inspiration picture. I stitched along the felt grass to get some stitching in there too.
I used some of the colors from the bunny's ears on the card by stamping background designs (Geo Graphic, Houndstooth) on the die-cut clouds.
What a fun challenge! But, don't take my word for it --------> Click on the Paper Smooches logo to play along!
