Little Nutty Buddy

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

I sure hope everyone is enjoying all the heat these days, but before too long...fall will be here!  For my post this week, I am excited to share a card for the upcoming season.
This is Little Nutty Buddy (M150) and Special Delivery sentiment (F116).  I think this little buddy is just the cutest!  This card could be used for a variety of different fall occasions - possibly a birthday, thinking of you, or get well soon card.
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image and background (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents were added on Buddy's nose.  Once this had dried, I proceeded to die cut the image using a MFT Stitched Circle Die. 

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Chocolate Chip cardstock and the layering piece is SU Kraft cardstock.  The designer paper is from Doodlebug - Friendly Forest 6x6 Paper Pad for both the background and fishtail flag die cuts.  Foam tape was applied to the main image to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension to this card. A piece of twine was tied in a bow and placed above the image.  The sentiment was stamped with versamark ink, and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Foam tape was also used to adhere the sentiment to the card.  To complete this card, three small YNS Gumdrops were added around the circle die cut.   Hope this inspires you to start on some fall projects!
