The challenge at Less Is More this week is Adapt a Fingerprint on a One Layer Card. HOW FUN!!!!!
I knew exactly what I was going to do.....and that was The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
The book just happened to be near my craft table when I saw this challenge come through, so it was quite the happy coincidence. :)
I took a Whisper White notecard and a selection of Stampin' Up! green inks....Gumball Green, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Garden Green and Lost Lagoon for a shot of blue tones.
I inked up my trusty fingerprint and stamped the caterpillar pattern using different ink colours and overlapping and stamping off now and then. The caterpillar's face was stamped using Tangelo Twist and the feet and eyes drawn with a Baked Brown Sugar marker.
This card is going to the daughter of a friend of mine for her birthday so I thought the Wish Big sentiment would be appropriate and then it struck me that a butterfly in the background would complete the caterpillar's 'story'. Cute yes?
I hope you like my card.
Stamps - My wonderful fingerprint!, A Dozen Thoughts (for the sentiment), Papillon Potpourri (for the butterfly)
Ink - Gumball Green, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Garden Green, Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon, Baked Brown Sugar Marker.
