Make it mini

2014-08-17 15.49.27wm

At the Little Miss Muffet challenge blog we were challenged to make a mini card, tag or something. I thought, OK, no problem. Boy, did I struggle with this one believe it or not.

2014-08-17 15.49.27wm

This is Daisy Kate Hatter and she fits perfectly onto a tag size card. I didn’t do any embellishment other than her but with the paper I thought it was perfect as it was. It felt a little odd not to add ribbon, flowers, etc. but I really didn’t feel the need to.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting and be sure to check out all of the great stamps and digitals at Little Miss Muffet stamps.

When the going gets tough

2014-09-01 11.21.16sm

We get Brian in all his weight lifting glory. Brian Lifting Weights is from the new Healthy Living collection at Make it Crafty \. This is a great collection full of 'healthy living' characters.

2014-09-01 11.21.10wmMiC

For the base of my card I used a Tim Holtz stencil and daubed on black ink to color the background. The sentiments are computer generated and popped up with pop dots.

I colored Brian with Copics. Here is a close up.
