Amanda Jayne Designs - Little Friend

 Hi everyone

I'm delighted to be Guest Designing for Amanda Jane Designs (AJD) for the next week or so. So today I have a really sweet card to share with you, and I'm using one of the cute little squirrel digi stamps called 'Little Friend' which I combined with a stamped sentiment. This stamp is also available as part of a stamp bundle. I used distress re-inkers to colour with,  I hope you like it. (For sale - £4.50 + P&P - requests by email please)  

Amanda has a lovely array of digi stamp, papers and sentiments in her Etsy shop, along with some pre-coloured images and papers. For your information, here is the link to the Amanda Jayne Designs Etsy Store to check out all the digi stamps and papers.

Here's What I Did
I trimmed down a sheet of lovely pink paper to fit the front of a 6" x 6" card blank, leaving a slim border around the edge, and die cut a pierced pattern around the edge. This was attached to the card front.

I imported the sweet squirrel stamp into my software and resized the scene to fit my project. The image was printed onto watercolour cardstock, then die cut with an ornate frame die. The image was coloured with distress re-inkers and pencils. 

The completed picture was glued flat onto the centre of the card front and a sentiment. The sentiment was stamped onto watercolour card, die cut with a small rectangle die and mounted onto card coloured using pink distress ink. Pink die cuts heart were added either side of the sentiment, then added flat onto the card front. To finish off the card I added glitter to the hearts, plus a few pearls.
