My first Toread - Xeru
Hi everyone, I've managed to spend some more time in my craft room this weekend whilst being on standby to take a family member to hospital....
I decided it was time to play with my new Toread stamps and accompanying cd from Crafters Companion. This little character is called Xeru...
I've coloured him using Copics. The backing papers are from the cd, printed onto smooth card. I've used Spellbinders Labels 29 to frame the image, inking with Forest moss distress ink. I also cut the same shape in the contrasting paper. The 'Brother' stamp is part of the stamp set, made into a tag with a Spellbinder Framed Tags One die. I used the forest moss ink on the tag and coloured some white ribbon with a copic I used in the image. The sentiment is LOTV and has been cut with a Spellbinder Stately circle die. I've added ribbon and candi to finish off. Here's a close-up of Xeru...
I've also decorated the inside to match the front...
I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Natalie & Amy - Die cuts
Addicted to stamps - use a stamp
Papercraft star - Happy Birthday
Simon says stamp - Anything goes
