All the Caffeinated Critters

Hi! I love the caffeinated critters line from The Rabbit Hole Designs! I grabbed almost all of them (the unicorn wouldn't fit) and stamped them on a background! The #momlife sentiment from the Caffeinated Cat stamp set just spoke to me! I have a 3 year old and we are smack in the middle of the "why?" question phase! I certainly need my caffeine throughout the day! Haha!

I used my MISTI so that I could stamp the Caffeinated Flamingo, Caffeinated Crab, Caffeinated Cat, Caffeinated Bee, Caffeinated Dino, and Caffeinated Octopus all together with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I used my Staedtler felt tipped pens to color in each of the critters. Once I was done I decided to do a flat wash of gray for my background, so I watered down a color from my Sakura Koi pan watercolor set. The panel looked empty in two of the corners, so I used the second largest die from the Stitched Rectangles 1 die set from Pink & Main to cut down my panel.

To finish off the card I heat embossed the #momlife sentiment from the Caffeinated Cat stamp set onto black cardstock three times and popped the strips onto my card with foam tape. I wanted to add some black Nuvo drops to the background of my card - and I had just seen a pretty genius tip! I squeezed some Nuvo drops onto my work surface and used the rounded end of a paintbrush to dip into the product and then add it to my card! This creates PERFECT circles every time and they dry faster because you're not using a bunch of excess product! Hooray! I'm always dragging something through my drops and these dried completely in about 15 minutes!! BONUS!! I have a video showing my process for this card! Check it out below!

Thanks for stopping by!
