Who would have ever thought that sloths would be so trendy right now?
Right after making this card, I had gone to the zoo with Cortney. Low and Behold there a was a sloth front and center.
They really aren't an attractive creature in real life....interesting, but not attractive. LOL
But this little guy sleeping on the tree branch IS cute. He's part of the new Whimsy Stamp's Sleepy Sloths set.
I stamped him and the branch in Black Memento ink. I masked him off, so I could use Distress inks for the background.
I splattered the background with a bit of water. I stamped the stars and sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed it in white. I peeled the mask off and colored Mr. Sloth with Copic markers. I felt the scene needed a pop of color besides the shades of purple I had going on here. So the leaves and flowers from the Beacoup stamp set were perfect. I stamped some flowers, leaves, and fussy cut them out. I glued them to the ends of the branch and added glossy accents to them. As a final touch I added Sparkletz Love Hearts and gems to the centers of the flowers.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today!
