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!
