Sticky Business!


This little guy is called “Sticky” and you can get him at Mo’s Digital Pencil.  The challenge at Mo’s was to use your favourite MDP image and a sentiment.  So I love all of them, but as of today Sticky is my favourite, but of course that changes from day to day. 

I decided to do some paper piecing.  It’s my favourite technique to use on cards.  The only part colored with copics is the face and hands.  I used some pink chalk ink to get those rosy cheeks!  Then I used liquid applique and glitter on the hat trim and pom poms.  I also used some white embroidery thread for the rope belt on his pants.  The embossed corners were done with a Fiskars corner/embossing punch.  The sentiment was computer generated.  I wanted a Christmas themed card for a friends birthday since she celebrates her day just before Christmas.

Sticky Close Up

Thought I’d show a close-up of the little guy.

It’s hard to see by the picture, but I added the boots and cuff a second time using pop dots for a 3D effect.

So thanks for taking the time to pop by.  Have a wonderful week-end.
