I am lucky enough to design for both of these FABULOUS companies! Yep, I am brand new to the Perfect Paper Crafting team and I've been having tons of fun using my new PPC tools!
For this card, I've used the super handy Perfect Layers Mini, which is the perfect size for card makers, Perfect Cutting mat (I love the size of this mat- it's big enough that your projects don't keep creeping off the side of the mat, and it's small enough that it won't take up a huge amount of space on your desk) and the Perfect Airbrush to add a little spritzing to my paper!
I absolutely LOVE this stamp by SugarPea Designs called Tweet Friend. And the versatility of SPD stamps just makes me happy! Sentiments in this set include: friendship, thinking of you, new home, new baby, expecting mothers!
I coloured her up with Copics, and added some shading with pastel pencils. I did a wee bit of sponging clouds in using a cloud shape die as a template. Dies and twine are by MFT, DP is Chickaniddy, and I added some gorgeous paper flowers given to me by one of my besties, fellow SugarPea Tracy Valure…isn't she the sweetest?!? I just about fainted when I opened a box sent to me FULL of flowers!! What a treat :)
I added in some machine stitching and her dress was stamped 4 times! I layered and flared each layer of the skirt….the little yellow flowers were also stamped again, fussy cut and adhered in the centre only for a bit of dimension on the petals….
Here's a close-up of some of that gorgeous spritzing! I really had fun with that tool…I used a brown Tim Holtz distress marker and it fit perfectly and the tool did a wonderfully subtle job with the ink.
