Isn’t that the cutest image. Okay, so I am partial to fairies, gnomes and mushrooms. But really? I think everyone has to love this image from Meljen. It’s available at Whimsy stamps as a digi image and is called Toadstool Buggies.

Unfortunately I still didn’t have my laser jet printer yet when I created this card. You can see some slight smearing happened when I colored the image with my Copics (Mushroom tops: R24, R27, R29, R39, Mushroom stem: E41, E42, E43, Leaf, grass: YG01, YG03, YG17, Bees: Y13, Y15, Y17, Y38, E13, E15, E17, E19, Flowers/ladybug: R05, R08, E09, Other flower: Y15, Y17, Y38, Vo4, V06, BG10, BG11, BG13, Background: BG0000. BG10). The image was cut with the largest Rectangle Nestabilities die, layered on a 3/16″ bigger piece of Basic black cardstock¬† and three edges were paper pierced.

For the layout I chose last week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch. The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half.

A 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of My Mind’s Eye Fine and Dandy patterned paper was stitched to a 3/16″ piece of black cardstock. Melissa Frances white lace was adhered around the layers.¬† Avocado Linen Ribbon was tied slightly over it and topped with a My Mind’s Eye button.

The sentiment is from The Cat’s Pajamas set Tweet Heart. It was stamped on a small tag in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The tag had been cut and embossed with a Spellbinders die out of Neenah Solar White cardstock and was colored with Copic Marker BG0000. It was adhered to the lower right hand side of the image panel. Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones on the end of the tag as well as the top left finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
