I have had this little image by Meljen (Mellissa Jenkins) ready to go on a card for the longest time, as well as some of his friends. Finally he has landed on a card. I know I should be using some of my patterened paper mountain, but I like him the way he is! I used my new Locking Loops dies and a panel cut with Card Creator basic set b by Spellbinders (I feel I need the A set now, the B shapes are just a little too small for the loops). I finished off with flat back pearls painstakingly added to each loop centre, and a great deal flicked over the floor and desk!
I think all the new dies are amazing, and thinking back to how plain and simple the first domestic dies were and how small things have progressed considerably, and every man and his dog is making and selling different dies, it used to be a case of three or four main players, and you wanted to collect maybe two, now it is confusing, you can never have them all! Also they are harder to cut (this one had to go through the eBosser twice in different directions), and may require waxed paper to release from the die.
The image was coloured with Promarkers of course. I hope to show you some more of these soon, I had a an accident with the bunny's ears so will have to start again with those.
I can't remember if this image was a freebie, I think it might be, I bought some and downloaded some free from Meljen. I spotted an image on someone's blog and followed the link and fell in love. The great news is Meljen is having a sale, and there are freebies still.
I have entered this in the following challenges:
