Little Star

Have you been popping over to the Cuddly Buddly store to see what Czes has been creating each day? Yesterday was the launch of a new character, meet Little Star the cute mouse. Czes has designed 4 digi stamp designs, plus coloured decoupage sheets and a matching set of pale pastel papers, and no doubt there will be more to come!

For my first card I used a piece of the pale pink star paper, unfortunately it's looking a bit washed out in my picture. My piece of cake image is coloured with Copics and I kept things simple with just a piece of satin ribbon, a cluster of butterflies and a text stamped in Orchid Brilliance pearlescent ink. I couldn't resist adding a little bling with the Stardust Stickles around the edge of the image and the bodies of the butterflies, although they are still wet in the picture!

I coloured with these Copics:
E50, 51, 53, E40, 41, E0000
R00, R81, 83, 85
Y0000, 00, 02

Crafty Catz have a Mother's Day theme challenge, and so do Crafty Creations and Die Cut Dreams - so here's my entry to their challenges.

This next Little Star digi image is called Just For You and coloured with Copics C1, 3, 5, R00, 20, 22, E0000, E40 and G20. The papers are various digi designs from Cuddly Buddly matted with pale pink cardstock from my stash. I've added a punched lacy edge, a piece of ribbon and a flowery embellishment created from a bloom I coloured with a darker coral pink Copic pen and punched and die cut bits and pieces, and the pearls are made with my cream Waco pearl maker pen. The stamped text is also from Cuddly Buddly and the stars are from the bargain bucket at my local art store over in Kelly Bray. They have a craft demo day today, so that's where I'm at .. .. I have a list of Copic Ciaos to add to my collection and hopefully there will be some more bargains in the buckets!
