It does seem like a long time since I posted something new; it’s just that school has started and have hence been busy ever since. Anyways, during the holls I’d placed an order with Paper Smooches – love Kim Hughes fun style. I am particularly partial to the Kangaroo from the Little Lovin stamp set as Australia is almost my second home.
I wanted to come up with something uniquely Australian and so created my own Aboriginal designs as background for the Kangaroo using some Stampin Up! markers and the famous white uni signo gel pen. Whilst it does give the card an ethnic feel, I wanted to add some fun element to it and that’s where Paper Smooches fit the bill.
I’ve uploaded the card onto the Paper Smooches blog as well. Kim Hughes is always encouraging posting cards and projects using her stamps and well… I obliged.
Here’s another angle to show the dimension.
