Little Darlings RubberStamps - Sooooo BIG!

I am so excited to be joining the Little Darlings Design Team for the months of June and July as the Guest DT! I just adore these images, they are so fun to color - and just bring a smile to everyone. 

One of the very first Little Darling images I fell totally in head over heals with was "Sooooo Big". He is such a good helper don't you think? I colored with my Copics, then did a little more shading with pencils. When I am really enjoying coloring an image I tend to be a heavy colorer.. LOL So my image is quite bold - I thought that would be safe with the gorgeous papers from Graphic 45. I adore these papers from the Fashonista collection, but they are very busy and dark for most cards. But "Sooooo Big" can handle it I think. 

I chose a few patterns, sewed them down with a zig zag stitch, then added a wide lattice ribbon, backed with red card stock,  across the bottom. My image is cut out with a Spellbinders Thin Oval die, the edge colored with a red Copic, then matted with a Papertrey Ink scalloped die. Now this card did not start out as an easel card, but then after I started putting things all together I soon decided that it need more display room for the sentiment. The letters that I had die cut, Papertrey Ink Script Alphabet, were a little large to add to the front. So Easel card it became so everything would fit nicely. I followed the same basic layout of pattern papers as the top, but then added the red card stock center to attach the words "Thank You" - everything again is sewed down. I cut out one of the larger roses from the patterned paper to embellish the front corner, then a row of adhesive pearls across the back to hold the card in standing position. 

Bold yes, but I still think that little helper can handle it! He is "Soooo Big" after all! 

See you tomorrow for Animal Crackers!
