Toadstool Fascination by ching-chou kuik

Happy Wednesday! This project was a dream to create. I got to use some of my favorite dies and mediums for this art card.

The digi stamp, ToadstoolFascination, designed by ching-chou kuik, is available at Sweet Pea Stamps. I loved all the detail in this little stamp, the leaves, the birds, that hair (I love coloring hair), and of course the toadstools.  This beautiful image is also available in rubber stamp form. Whether you want the digi format or the rubber stamp format, SPS has the stamp for you.

I started out by coloring Toadstool Fascination with Copics, with a little highlighting with a white gel pen. I trimmed the image and mounted her on Stampin’ Up! Buckaroo Blue and Early Espresso. My designer paper is from my stash, but I do know that I made the purchase from Hobby Lobby. There's a lot of layers and dimension going on.
