A real fungi

Okay, how cute is this new mushroom image from Hambo?
And the matching sentiment is perfect!

Here's what I came up with for my first card with these images.
I had a scrap of cream paper with red polka dots that I had to use. It totally reminded me of the cute little mushrooms on the stamp!

To make the blue sky background, I punched out a couple of small circles and moved them around on my paper while I used the Stampin Up spritzer tool. When I was finished, I lightly sponged over the sky with "Sky Blue" ink to soften it up.

I colored the image with my Copics and popped up a couple of those cuties on dimensionals.
To finish it off, I tied a piece of Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon around the front. That stuff ties like a dream - I'll have to stock up before it's retired next month!
Thanks for popping by today.
If you have any of the new Hambo images, I'd LOVE to see what you do with them. Be sure to send me a link so I can share it with my readers!
See ya tomorrow - hugs,
