Super Sweet Cuties

It may be late, but I am so ready to share some super cute cards I created today. I'm using these adorable stamps from Sweet Stamp Shop "Dragon" and "Koala".

He is such a cutie pie! I created a subtle cloudy background for him to fly through by making my own masks and shaded with Distress Inks...

I stamped some clouds on multiple pieces of post-it notes and just laid them on my card front. The sticky end of the post-it kept the clouds from moving while I was inking...

I lightly distressed the entire card front with "Tumbled Glass" and "Peacock Feathers" inks. Then I removed the post-its and was left with this cute sky scene. This worked perfectly for me, since I don't own any cloud stencils or masks.

I finished off the sky by adding some falling hearts with modeling paste and a stencil, then sprinkled glitter on the wet paste. The dragon and sentiment were colored with Copic Markers and adhered to the card with foam tape.

Next I have the Koala to share! I wanted the koalas to have a very Aussie vibe to them, so I included a lot of different textures and mediums. It reminds me of an Australian desert :)

The larger panel is DCWV Corrugate paper that I lightly painted with white acrylic, then topped with gold spray mist. I also die cut some DCWV Burlap to create the center circle. The sentiment banner has foam tape in the center but glue on the ends to create a sense of movement. These koalas were also colored with Copic markers.

Thanks for joining me for a late night post today! Hope you're all having fun watching Shark Week ;)
