Hi there, Crafty Friends... I hope you all are having an awesomely crafty month so far!! Don't forget that Pink and Main holds monthly challenges... and this month's theme is LOVE.
So, get your super fab Pink and Main stamps out and get crafting!!
I'm joining in on the fun and sharing a little "Love" too!!
Here is my card for this month's challenge...
For this card, I used Pink and Main's Somebunny stamps set. I thin this little girl is absolutely adorable clutching her little bunny rabbit.
She also come with a couple sentiment options to use with her, as well as flower, center, and leaf stamps to coordinate.
I colored my little girl with Spectrum Noir color pencils and blended the color with low odor mineral spirits and blending stumps.
Here is a before and after...
The first picture (left) is before being fully colored with Spectrum Noir Pencils and mineral spirits. The second picture (right) after being colored and blended.
I also added eyelashes and highlights to her eyes and freckles to her cheeks. I find the smallest details add the most character. It's the same little girl in both pics but the faces look so different.
Then, I fussy cut her out and backed her with foam adhesive for dimension.
For the card base I cut a A2(4.25"x 5.5" folded) sized card base. I also cut out a 4"x5.25" card mat. I rounded both the card and mat''s edges with a corner punch.
The frame was cut from an old Sizzix die that has been retired called Frame, Scallop. I used it to cut my patterned paper as well fun foam. The foam makes the frame just pop!!
I also hand drew faux stitching throughout the entire card.
The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black on white cardstock cut with the second to the smsllest Darice Nested Rectangles die.
I topped the card with a quadruple loop hemp bow and bright pink button. Then added tiny heart rhinestones around my little sweetie. These are so super small, they are what manicurist use to put on nails. I think you can find them in the nail section of most super stores or even the dollar stores. I attached all my embellies with a tiny amount of 3D Lacquer.
