I Wheelie Like You!

Hello! I had a bit of fun this morning creating a card for a couple challenges - it actually took me a couple days to get the background to look at least a bit as I was picturing in my head. I think I might have finally gotten pretty close!


I was inspired by the current Runway Inspired Challenge:




And finally, this week's Simon Says Monday Challenge - Lions and Lambs, Oh My! (animals and critters):


I created this background using the "smooshing" technique. I sponged some distress ink on my non-stick mat, misted with water, then "smooshed" my watercolor paper on it. I used the darling Lawn Fawn set Wheelie Like You, with a bit of fussy cutting. I stamped on plain white cardstock, then dipped my water brush into a MFT inkpad for the orange color, and a distress one for the gray/black. Stamped the little hearts with the matching MFT ink, and added a strip of coordinating MFT cardstock. Finished off with a bit of Wink of Stella on the hamster, and the hearts.


Thanks for dropping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
