PTT Challenge # 110 - Die Cuts

Hello Friends!

Welcome back to another busy Tuesday here at Stella, Roo & Fena Too!  The sun is shining out and I know it is going to be a great day!

Today at Party Time Tuesday's we have several fabulous sponsors for our Die Cuts challenge.  The Robin's Nest, Papelitos Stamps & our month of March sponsor The Paper Nest Dolls.

 Papelito's Stamps provided this goofy guy digi image, Peter for me to color.  It appeared to me that he danced to the beat of his own drum but was likely very creative.  I like him.  So I colored him up with my copics and cut the image out with my large Deckled Rectangle spellbinders die.  I used some walnut stain distress ink around the image and set him off with some black card stock.  The background of the card is done with My Mind's Eye Lost and Found paper line.  These colors are some of my favorite in the pack.  I used an EK Success punch to trim the bottom yellow design paper.  I added some chipboard die puzzle pieces covered with matching papers.  Tied them up with twine and topped them off with a button.  The sentiment is from Traveling Colors by Saturated Canary.   I also used the large Deckled Rectangle by spellbinders and offset it with black card stock.  It is finished with black and white ribbon and a safety pin by Tim Holtz.  Quick tip, the white on the ribbon was too bright, so I used my distress ink and went over it with some walnut stain.  It softened it a bit and made it match the card better.

Copics used:
Hair:  C3, C5, C7, C9
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13
Shirt:  YR23, YR24, YR27
Jacket:  G20, G21, G24
Sack:  E21, E25, E29
Pants:  E81, E84, E87
Shoes:  E21, E25, E29, W00, W1, W2

For the inside, I used the same background layout as the front.  But I only added one chipboard die puzzle piece.  The tag was cut with my Silhouette and inked with Tim Holtz distress inks.    I loved the look of the tag with the notebook paper bottom and the circles cut out of it.

Distress Inks used:
Dried Marigold,
Peeled Paint
Mustard Seed
Black Soot
