New Digital Stamp



It is a beautiful day in Wisconsin and I should be outside enjoying it. However I got my first stamp from Squigglefly and I had to make a card. When I saw this fat little fellow I couldn't help think he just can't stop eating. Then I thought, "I cant' stop... missing you," would go perfect with card. I also wanted to try to use 5 embellishments so that I could give Cupcake Craft challenge 37 a try and the layout challenge at Creative Card Crew. The five embellishments I used are; the white ribbon, the white flower, a blue brad in it, little green metal leaves by the "I Can't Stop", and three flower grommets.
I have a lot to learn about coloring the image. I messed up three or four times trying to use water color pencils and a blending pen. The ink from the printer kept bleeding. I only have three copic markers and I used one of them to blend the colored pencils. It worked OK but I need more copic markers! Thanks for stopping by. Letting me know what you think.
