My card today features the new Lil Toy Machine Stamp Set and coordinating Lil Toy Machine CC.


To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the  Lil Toy Machine Stamp Set and die-cut them with the coordinating Lil Toy Machine CC.

The A2 size front panel was ink blended with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide and I added splatters of inks diluted with water to create texture. After, I stamped the sentiment from the Lil Toy Machine Stamp Set.
