Free Hugs!

It's time for another Sketch challenge at Gina K Stamp TV It is a cute little round card!

Isn't this just the cutest little sketch?
Here is my take on the card. I decided to use GKD/Theresa Momber's Little Critters.

Doesn't he just make you want to stand in line for those "Free Hugs"?

Technique: Copics, sponging and paper piecing

Scratch pice of Cryogen paper
Focal image base: 4.5 in X 4.5 in

Focal Image: Rubber Stamp by GKD/Theresa Momber’s “Little Critters”

Copic Markers : . V91, V93, V95, BV20, W4, G28, YG63, YG40, YG93, YG99 and Colorless Blender

Card stock : GKD Pure Luxury Vibrant Violet and Cryogen Paper for focal image.

Ink : Memento Tuxedo Black, Sweet Plum, LuLu Lavendar and Dandelion.

Embelishments: Rhinestones

Spellbinders Nestabilities “Standard Circles” and “Classic Circle Large Scallops”

Tip of the Day: Imaginisce has a wonderful little tool that allows you to adhere Imaginisce rhinestone without glue. It is a heat tool and your embellishment is applied quicker than a blink of an eye!

I "paper pieced" the focal image and assembled it on the scalloped base. The Pure Luxury Vibrant Violet really went great with the Copic colors. I applied the rhinestones with Imaginisce heat tool to complete the project.

Stop over at GKD gallery and look at all the wonderful entries for the sketch challenge. There are just so many wonderful, talented people!

Thank you for stopping and please feel free to leave a comment!
Hugs and Smiles from California!
