I'm still using the Darling Doodles Designer Paper pack..... amazes me how far a package of paper goes. My friend had a sweet baby boy a couple weeks ago. I'm SO late with a card. I had a bit of time this weekend to try and catch up a bit.
The Zebra is stamped on Shimmery White card stock and colored in with my aquapainter with Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou ink ink. I added some black with my Sakura Glaze pen to his hoofs and some glitter with the Sakura Glitter pen to his tail and mane. I masked him and stippled around him with Soft Sky and around the edges with a tad of Blue Bayou. He is then stitched on to a piece of DS paper (opposite side of the paper on the bottom), then adhered to a piece of Blue Bayou.
The stars are punched out from the same double sided paper, then adhered to another punched out star of either Blue Bayou, or Soft Sky and popped up with Dimensionals. I didn't want the top of the card too busy with the designer paper, so I reached for some of the new textured paper.... oh man is that nice. The sentiment is from the set Small Sayings stamped on Soft Sky card stock then cut out with the large oval punch. I then punched out two more large ovals from Blue Bayou card stock and layered them behind it. One slightly above, one slightly below. I used my Crafter's Tool Kit to pierce some holes, then added the dots with my Sakura Black Glaze pen and some tiny little star jewels. The bottom scallop is made with my corner rounder punch (just remove the guide). Yes, that is stitching from my sewing machine. :)

Okay, I'm really going to catch up on some things today and finish getting the kids ready to start school on Wednesday. My sweet son, Sheldon has been helping with laundry all weekend and now you can actually see the floor! I love that boy! Okay... so I made a deal to trade some Xbox time, but it's worth it.
Hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend. Stay safe!
