My Mum's Craft Shop DT - Chatty Squidgy

Hi there everyone ­čĺť

Today I'm here with another My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) Design Team card for you. I've chosen one of the stamps from the gorgeous Stamping Bella Squidgy range. I just think that these little characters so sooo sweet. I've been wanting to colour up one of these little cuties for ages, but just haven't had the opportunity until for my card I chose 'Chatty Squidgy.' and coloured her with Copics. To complete my card I used a few dies and a stencil from My Favorite Things (MFT).  Hope you like it.

A Little Close Up For You

Here's What I Did
First I stamped my image onto Neenah card and die cut it into a square and then cut another square from lilac card. The image was also stamped again onto a post-it note and cut out, this was then placed over the image to protect it. Using a stencil, pale pink ink was gently sponged through it making sure not to make it too dark. The stencil was carefully removed and the image was coloured using alcohol markers.

The completed image was added to the lilac mat, then attached to the card font using foam tape. Next the words 'Hi' and 'There' were die cut from  Neenah card stock and funky foam.  Before removing the die cut words from the Neenah card they were coloured using 2 different coloured marker pens (pink & lilac) - the top and bottom were coloured and blended to create an ombre effect. The finished words were glue to the funky foam and glitter was added to them - these were then added to the card front.

To finish off I added 3 lilac pearls to the bottom of the card, and a sprinkling of some sequin waste.
