Koetie and friend

I'm a little late with my DT card for this week's animal antics theme on Cute Card Thursday, but better late than never! I've inked up this cute stamp by Nellies Choice called Koetie and squirrel then coloured with my Copics. Not too many shades, mainly the warm greys, a little B0000 and touches of coral pink R20 & 22 plus green G40 & 94.

I've tried brightening my pictures as even though it's summer again here in Cornwall, it looked dark on my screen. I've added loose clear glitter with a glue pen around the edges of the layers, tied a length of silk ribbon around the embossed white layer, then diecut the Marianne snowflakes and poinsettias. I've inked the diecuts with aqua chalk ink and finished off with sparkly gems. Oh, and I forgot to say, I used my pearl pen to add the little snowflakes to the image.

Paper Sundaes have an anything goes theme running this week - but I'm having problems linking up with them .. .. will try again later when Mr Blogger has had his afternoon cuppa!

  4. Hi Annie!! WOW! Gorgeous image and such pretty sparkle everywhere!! I love it hun!! Have a great weekend! HUGS

  5. Such a precious image, and you've done it total justice. I like the colours -- the soft blue-green card and flowers are perfect. Really like this loads!

  6. The brightening really works as far as I can see. I always have to auto correct on my photo editing otherwise the photos are dark. Love your coral & green touches with those warm greys - that little squirrel is a real treat the way he is sliding off that snow on the branch.
    Trip to Cardiff Show tomorrow. Had an SOS phone call to work selling books today so earnt some extra pennies for that.
