The Very Hungry Caterpillar

What a great day!  My fellow Hambo Stamps Bacon Bit, Carolina Little, is the Featured Stamper today on Splitcoast!  I just had to join in the fun!

I absolutely love the cute scenes Carolina makes with her cards.  She expertly combines design paper and uses beautiful colors.  Go take a peek at her gallery.  You'll see what I'm talking about. I tried to do her work justice with my card.  I was inspired by this card.

I stamped Hambo's Hungry Caterpillar (2906) onto X-Press It cardstock with Marvy black dye ink.  I colored it with Copic markers and then cut around the image. I stamped the image two more times to get some more leaves to add to my scene.  I colored and cut those out as well.

Using a My Favorite Things die, I cut two strips of grass with patterned paper from Kaiser Craft.  I then used a scrap of blue patterned paper (sorry, source unknown) for my sky.  I simply drew the top of the sky's line to form the cloud-like appearance at the top.  I added hand-drawn clouds out of white cardstock to the scene.  This scene was then placed on a white cardstock panel.  I paper pierced the top of the scene, and added a sun that is constructed with a button, Baker's twine and a hand-drawn rays from a piece of patterned paper from Bella Blvd.

The finishing touches include a hand-drawn heart colored with Copics, and the sentiment...which was a portion of a Hampton Arts Stamp that I inked with a Memento Tuxedo Black pen.

Congrats, Carolina on your special day!  A well-deserved honor indeed!
