Hugs and Kisses

Today I made a card for a couple of different challenges. The first is the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week which is to follow Dawny's sketch. Here is the sketch to follow:

The second challenge is for Mo's Digital Challenge which is "Hugs and Kisses" using a Mo Manning image. Here is my completed card:

I used a digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil entitled "Love Ya". Isn't she adorable! I coloured her with Copics and a bit of coloured pencil. I double printed the image and fussy cut the teddy bear and sweater so that I could pop it up for added dimension. I added a tiny green pearl as the button on her sweater for a tiny bit of bling. Here is a more detailed image to show you the dimensional effect:

One of the background papers I used is white embossed with Hero Arts Studio Calico background stamp called "Lattice". I inked the paper with sponge daubers and Distress Inks to create a rainbow effect and then misted the whole thing with Perfect Pearls to add some shimmer. I was very pleased with the overall effect. Hope you like it too.

Until next time,
