Grasshopper Fluffles

Although I love digital stamps, sometimes I feel like some old-fashioned rubber stamping.  For this card, I used F152 Grasshopper Fluffles from Stampendous, stamped in StazOn Jet Black ink and coloured with Tombow watercolour markers.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Art Gone Wild.  Other supplies used were:  cardstock (Recollections), watercolour paper (Carson), DP (Glitter Max), embossing folder (Cuttlebug - Baby's Breath), flower punches (EK Success), circle punch (Marvy Uchida), white gel pen (Uniball Signo), ribbon (Offray), and gems (Kaisercraft).

  1. Saw your pretty card as I was entering challenges after you. It's Purr-fect (that's me being spontaneous in a good way) for the Red/White/Blue. Like the way you colored the digi. Nice use of the embossing. Especially like the background striped paper. Did you create the stripes & color on the background paper or did it come that way?

  2. Hi, Melissa - Thanks for your nice comment! I can't take credit for the background paper - it is from Glitter Max and came in a pack - I really like it too! I've been using this pack of paper a lot lately. Thanks for visiting my blog! KT
