{RC} Quirky Cuties Hop!


Hey there! I'm super excited and honoured to be participating as a special guest for Reverse Confetti's Quirky Cuties Blog Hop! I am a colouring enthusiast, so this stamp line is one of my RC faves! They are such fun to colour…if you haven't picked one of these sweet characters up yet, I highly encourage you to! You definitely won't be sorry that you did- I have so much fun colouring these cuties!

You should have arrived from the oh-so-talented Stacey Schafer's blog!


I chose to work with the newest Quirky Cutie, Rocky Racoon…. I've coloured him with copics and a bit of black pastel pencil for the dark shadows. I glossed up his nose (love the heart noses!), eyes and paw pads with glossy accents. I fussy cut him out- His shirt is paper pieced- and used some foam dots to pop him up on an extended cut of the new Tag Me, Too Confetti Cut. 

You'll also see Arrow, Love Note, and Tag Me Confetti Cuts used on my card.


The inside of the card features the word dies from Tag Me, Too and sentiment from Rocky Racoon, stamped in Memento Luxe Nautical Blue.


Anyone interested in some PRIZES?? Oh yeah!  TWO random commenters will win:
Studio 3 Solutions Color Cubbie + 3 Quirky Cuties (winner’s choice)…so leave comments along the way to increase your chances of winning!


Up next on the hop is my uber talented friend and favourite kiwi, Miss Sarah Gough! And if you get a little lost along the way, you can always check back at the Reverse Confetti Blog for the complete hop list. Thanks for stopping by!

Great texture, too!
