Don't ya just wanna hug him?!! This is Bundled Up Mike, he's one of my newest stamps from Whipper Snapper. My order just came yesterday. Yay!
I followed today's SCS Sketch Challenge #SC190 for the layout, and went with today's colors from the girls on the Color Throwdown blog (Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue and Apricot Appeal). As soon as I saw Ballet Blue and Apricot Appeal were two of the colors, I said, "I'm there!" These are two of my most favorite SU colors.
Mike was colored with Copic markers (number are noted below in the recipe), then I added some two way glue on the ground and heat embossed it with Irridescent Ice embossing powder. The round brads are white sugar-coated/sparkly brads. The white snowflake brads were heat embossed with the two-way glue and Irridescent Ice EP as well. The Bashful Blue scallop circle is up on dimensionals and so is the scalloped oval behind the sentiment. The inside of the card has a snowflake stamped in the lower left corner in Ballet Blue.
