I Love You Moost of All

Please let me introduce you to Millard - The Moose on the Loose.  Millard is part of a new set of digi stamps designed by our daughter-in-law, Amy of LoveBeingWright Designs.  The set comes with 2 Millard images (one full body and one head shot) and 6 sentiments.  Amy's inspiration in drawing Millard was a moose our son gave her a couple Christmases ago. 



I used a sketch by Mojo Monday (MOJO268) for my card design.  I embossed the main circle and inked it using a direct-to-paper technique.  The perimeter of the background panel and the two accent circles were paper pierced and faux stitches were drawn with a marker.



I colored Millard with copics and fussy cut him.  He was then popped up over the embossed panel.  The sentiment was anchored with a button from my stash that had been threaded with a bit of baker's twine.  I'm planning to drop this card off at my hubby's work to let him know I'm thinking of him during the day. 

Supplies:
Cardstock:  Recollections, The Paper Studio, Copic
Patterned Paper:  MME (All boy)
Stamp:  LoveBeingWright Designs (Millard-the Moose on the Loose digi set)
Ink:  Memento (Toffee Crunch), Copics (E04, 25, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37)
Embellishments/Tools:  baker's twine (The Twinery-cappuccino), button from my stash, Spellbinders Standard Circles (Large & Small), Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Distressed Stripes), Sharpie Fine Point Marker (brown)
