G'day Mate!! Walkabout Wally!!

I made this card to participate in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge.

This week the challenge is to make a cute card with people in it. I think "Walkabout Wally" from High Hopes Stamps sure qualifies in that category.

Walkabout Wally and the G'day Mate Sentiment are both from High Hopes new release Jungle Stamps.

I also used the SC169 sketch for this card....

Walkabout Wally is on dimensionals...and his hand and stick are cut outside of the top layer.

The red X's are done with embroidery floss...I was inspired by Crissy's (#1artist4highhopes) Amazing card!..http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...863486?si=hhsd

The dragon fly was a button ....I took off the back and added the wire. I put diamond glaze on the binoculars and leaves.

The recipe:

Image is colored with Prismacolor pencils (OMS) and H20's

Stamps: All High Hopes Stamps - G'day Mate, Walkabout Wally

Paper: whisper white, PC slab V, basic grey, always artichoke, WT Black CS

Ink: stazon black, old olive, bashful blue, close to cocoa

Accessories: fibre, dragonfly button, wire, stitching, dimensionals, diamond glaze, embroidery floss, watercolor crayon for spattering.

Have a Great Day!! and Thanks for looking!!

I love this Ila, Such fantastic detail on this card. Such a great idea to cut out Wally's hand and stick to make it look dimensional. I am still waiting patiently for my new jungle friends to arrive. I hope they arrive today. Hugs, Nikki x
