The Stamp Basket DT - Fizzy Moon

Thursdays are my day to share a creation on The Stamp Basket blog, and I've used a very cute Fizzy Moon stamp.  It's the first time I've coloured one of these stamps and I thought I'd made a big mess of it, but it didn't look too bad when I'd finished... phew!




I've coloured the image with flexmarkers, promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, and then added glamour dust on his hat.  I cut a circle aperture from a piece of Nitwit paper and raised that piece on foam pads, with the image in the aperture.  The sentiment is from the same Fizzy Moon stamp set, and the poinsettia was cut with a Marianne Design Creatables die with lots of stickles and a little gem added... and I know the poinsettia shouldn't really be blue lol... I like it in blue though!

Items used:
Craftwork Cards scalloped edge card (size 6)
Image & sentiment - Fizzy Moon - presents
Nitwit Collections - Joyful Hearts 'holly white' paper
Marianne Design Creatables die - poinsettia serrated edge
Deco Art glamour dust in crystal
Dovecraft adhesive gemstones

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

My cold is finally starting to go, hurrah!  I'm still coughing but at least I'm feeling better, so hopefully I can get lots done in the next few days.  Ooh and my limited edition winter Distress Inks arrived today so I need to find time to play with them, they look gorgeous :o)
