We thought we'd kick of this release with a dose of cuteness overload! But don't worry, this is the kind of cute anyone can get behind. Cute and sweet, yet charming with a hint of whimsy - thanks to the wonderful illustration style of Stephany Zerbe.

See what I mean? And if you think they're cute in black and white. Check them out in full on color!

I wanted to create a deep yet vibrant night sky as a backdrop for these little guys. And I knew that a distressed ink blending technique would be perfect for this. I began by distressing a white cardstock panel with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers. Then splattered it with water and let it dry to create the spattering of water marks to break up the solid color. Then, I added some gold splatter using Gansai Tambi Starry Colors.

To color the cute critters, I stamped them all in a Copic safe ink and then colored them with Copic Markers.

I die-cut the distressed panel using the scalloped rectangle from the Sunshine Layers Die and adhered the die-cut images with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment "Reach for the Stars", also included in the same stamp set in PURE COLOR Dye Ink in Black. I decided to also distress the card base with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire to match the distressing on the focal panel. Some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finish off the card.

I couldn't stop at one card. So for this second card, I wanted to create an all-over background by simply stamping the images directly on my card panel and coloring them with Copic markers.

This time I mounted it onto a pink card base for a pop of color. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto black cardstock and also adhered with foam tape to finish off the card.

I hope you've enjoyed today's preview. Be sure to stop by again tomorrow for a look at another new floral set!
