Cute as a Caterpillar

Craftanoon always has a couple of optional challenges, which of course, are entirely up to you whether you wish to enter them or not.

I thought I'd play along so have a look at this cute little chap.

When we arrived at Craftanoon, waiting at each place at the tables was a little paper bag with some goodies inside.  This challenge was to make something using one or more of the contents.

I started off with an ATC size piece of white cardstock (3 1/2" x 2 1/2")  which I thought was just a bit big for this cute little caterpillar (Stampotique) so I cut another piece of card (3" x 2") which was just right.  I stamped him in 'jet black' Archival Ink and coloured him with watercolour pencils.  I went over him with my Wink of Stella pen to give him a lovely shimmer.  I edged around the card with blue Distress Ink, then tied the blue check ribbon (from my goodie bag) around the bottom.  Next I popped this onto dimensionals, then adhered this to a piece of gold cardstock which in turn was adhered to another piece of folded white to make a nice little gift card.
Lastly I added the three little gold hearts, which were also in my goodie bag.

I'm entering this little chap into the Craft Stamper Challenge - take a stamp

Thanks for coming to look today.
Happy Crafting!!!
