The Challenge Cracked Me Up!

The Corrosive Challenge this week is to create something with a spring/Easter feel...fitting for this week of course! My adorable Cracked Up Huggabugg from Stamping Bella had yet to see ink, so I pulled it out for this challenge. Did you know the sentiment is included with this image...Thanks Em!

I stamped the Huggabugg with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with copics. I stamped the small eggs a second time and mounted them on dimensionals so they'd "pop". Some Stardust Stickles on the wings adds a perfect shimmer. The sentiment is one long saying, but I wanted it to fit in the circle so I inked the two halves separately and used my stamp-a-majig to position the words under each other. 

I used last week's Mojo #80 sketch for the layout and patterned papers from Imaginisce, the For Peep's Sake line. The solid colours are bashful blue, so saffron and pink pirouette. A little white taffeta ribbon, lots of paper piercing, some fabulous 5mm Platinum Bella Glitter Dots and voila...one completed card! 

So pop over to the Corrosive Challenge blog, take a peek at this week's challenge and play along. You have all week to play and Janet has a wonderful prize for one lucky participant!

Thanks for stopping by!

That is SO cute! I'm ashamed to say mine hasn't seen ink. I make my Easter cards super early this year and then bought this stamp. Oh well, it'll have to wait until next year.
