It's a Flopsey kinda day

I had hoped to get this card finished last night but I went & sat for a very long time in line at the car wash to get 2 months worth of snow & dirt off my car - now I don't want to take it out of the garage!!

When I saw Taylor's sketch challenge yesterday I LOVED the layout and couldn't wait to play along!

I inked MFT's Snow Bunny Flopsey with Mementos black in and stamped him on Gina K's 120lb Pure Luxury cs because I knew I would be heating the liquid applique so I wanted the heavier cardstock. The 12olb cardstock is great because the copics (no matter how much layer you do) don't come through!

I coloured Flopsey with copics and then for his drink (hmm is that a green Starbucks mug - must be a mocha or something else that involves whip cream; treat I never have but they always look so good!) and fur on the mittens I used liquid applique with dazzling diamonds and heat set it - love how it puffs and sparkles at the same time!

The card base is SU's Pink Pirouette, layered with Kiwi Kiss and the DS paper is from American Crafts "everyday" line. Flopsey is cut with a large nesties label and the pink pirouette is cut from a small nesties label to give a smaller layer. I used Pumpkin Pie ribbon topped with some strawberry parfait dots from Stamping Bella.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday

Flopsey, our fellow Starbucks fan...he's so adorable. Great colouring job and the liquid applique is just the right touch. :)

So very cute he is. Those little dots on the background papaer are the perfect size. He looks like he's warming his little paws on his Starbucks, grande, non-fat, no water, extra hot Tazo Chai! Hmm, I'm suddenly thirsty :)
