Best Buddies

Hi everyone!  I know I haven't posted for a while but I'm back and this month is going to be a busy one! So I'm just going to dive right in with my project for today.

I'm so in love with this digi stamp and it's called My Best Buddy.  The cute armadillo with his snail pal riding on his back!  Oh the cuteness!  Picking this stamp was easy but now I needed a color theme.  Have you seen this month's challenge inspiration in the CDD Gallery Facebook group yet?  It's fabulous and just perfect for making some spring cards.  Here it is if you haven't seen it.


You have plenty of time to get started and make something fun!  You have a chance to win one of three prizes.  I promise you will have fun.

Back to my project.  Color scheme chosen.  Hmm, now what medium do I want to use??  I saw my tin of Inktense pencils were gathering dust.  A sure sign I needed to put them to use!  I colored the critters and grounded them with a little ground and sky.  I also went around the entire image with a black fine tip marker to make it pop out.  I cut it out using the brand new Inside Scalloped Circle dies. 

I'm still on a plaid kick so I dedided I would make my own plaid.  The twist this time was that I used my Inktense pencils!  They were already out on my table just begging to be used some more.  I drew the lines with the pencils and went over it with my water brush.  I just love how it turned out.  You can bet I'll be making more plaids with my Inktense pencils in the future!

I adhered the outer circle directly to the background but used foam tape to pop up the inside of the circle.  I think it gives a bit more interest.  I used the sentiment that comes with the My Best Buddy digital stamp.  I printed it out on kraft cardstock and used a die from the Flag Banners die set.  I swear I use the Flag Banners die set all the time!  I adhered a strip of watercolor paper down and then added the sentiment strip.  All done!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
