Twinkle Toes


Hi guys,

I can't seem to get enough of these Huggabuggs. I love all of them but particularly fell in love with this Twinkle Toes Huggabugg, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her.

Before I go on to explain how I made this card, I want to let you know that I am trying to figure out my new camera and it will take a while before I get sharp and clear pictures. I find that the pictures on line don't exactly look as vibrant as they do in real life. Hopefully this weekend I will have time to read the instructions that came with the camera. What happened to the cameras that you just aim and shoot (goof proof), without a million different features. LOL

I love the shape of the Nesties that I used on the card and only embossed the white layer. I stamped and coloured the image with Lyra coloured pencils and Odorless Mineral spirits. I looked everywhere for buttons that I could use as embellishments, but couldn't find the right shade of pink, so I decided to use my QuicKutz 2" die, and cut them with my Big Shot. The oval layers are also Nesties. Of course I used glitter to give Twinkle Toes some sparkle. Isn't that the best sentiment for this card?

Thanks so much for visiting.

Please come back on the weekend and see some more cards.

Have a great weekend,

Nicky

The only reason Dana was first to comment is that her fingers have thawed out! I think she sent the deep freeze here :)

Adorable as always. :) I love how she fits just right into the nestabilities...one would think she was intentionally designed that way...too bad I can't claim that! LOL
Great colors. :)
