Create a Smile November Guest Designer Search

Hi guys,

So Create a smile are looking for a guest designer for next month and I thought I'd apply. Click on the image below to check out their blog post and why not give it a go yourself:

So here's my card. I used my current favourate create a smile stamp set, Whimsical Wheels, to create my design. Let me know what you think in the comments and, if you're interested, read on for how I created it:

I used Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock for my card base, cut to A2 size. I then used some grid patterned washi tape for the background of my little scene. I used the digger image from the Whimsical wheels stamp set and stamped it using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I second generation stamping to create a muted grey lined image which I think works well for this mainly pastel coloured card. I then coloured my image using copic markers. I used a coat of glossy accents to give it some shine and adhered it to the card using foam pads.

I die cut heart shapes from pink and red cardstock scraps using my Simon Says Stamp mini heart dies and adhered them in a 'heap' using tombo mono liquid adhesive. I used Bella Letters from Mama Elephant to create my sentiment. Again I used Tuxedo Black ink and second generation stamping and I used more washi tape to give a pop of colour. I put the sentiment on a strip of card and adhered it with more foam pads.
