Bundles of Hugs

Hi there and welcome back!  I have a card to share that I made for three challenges-the current sketch challenge at The Paper Players, the inspiration challenge at Just Us Girls and the current Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

For my card I decided to use images from the Fall Friends stamp set from MFT, just because I love these cute images and I knew the little girl and her squirrel buddy would fit on a circle that would work well for the sketch.

The stamped images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the companion dies then set aside.  I also used a couple of colored pencils to darken the shading on the little girls's hat, jacket, skirt and boots.  The circle was die cut from Koh-I-Noor Bristol paper then sponged with Distress Oxide inks, the clouds created with a stencil.  I adhered the images to the circle then set to work on the craft panel.

After using a scallop stitched rectangle die to cut the panel, post it tape was used to mask off the scallop edges, then the leaf, pumpkin and acorn images were stamped randomly over the panel.  I then used a brown Copic marker to fill in some of the open spaces with dots and heat embossed the sentiment.  The panel was cut at an angle, then added to the card base with fun foam.  Lastly the circle with the main images and a few scattered Dew Drops were added.

Thanks so much for visiting, it's always so appreciated!  I've added links above to all three challenges, so I hope you'll go check them out.
