Hey friends, it's Christy! Today I'm back with the June edition of Christy Gets Crafty with My Favorite Things! I could not resist the cute critters in the Crafty Companions stamp set by Rachelle Anne Miller. This little artist caught my eye, and I decided to try to depict him inside his own painting! I colored the images in with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.
For the focal panel I used the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX to die cut some Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock. Then I blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink over the Rolling Clouds Stencil. I added a Grassy Hill inked with Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover. I stamped my sentiment at the top and adhered my images with liquid glue.
The background I wanted to mimic the little canvas the raccoon was working on, so I watercolored with more Distress Oxide Inks, including Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, and Dusty Concord. Once that was dry, I trimmed it down with the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 and adhered it to a Sno Cone card base. I popped the focal panel up with foam tape, added a sprinkle of Sparkling Clear Sequins down the left side, and filled in the centers with Stardust Stickles.
