You're Huggable!

Hello crafty friends!  Today I'm showing you a card I made with an adorable image from QKR Stampede.  I stamped this cute little guy onto white card stock and colored him with watercolor pencils, then did a bit of fussy cutting around him. 
I used a heart shaped doily and adhered it to the card with tape runner, then cut the extra away.  I stamped "You're Huggable" onto the doily, this is another QKR Stampede image.  I then used foam tape to add the image to the card.  I used a white gel pen for the dots and dashes around the edge of the card. 
Here is a close up picture of this cute little guy's belly and ears.  It looks like Flower Soft doesn't it?  Well, it isn't. I simply took a styrofoam ball, cut it in half and rubbed the 2 halves together.  This causes it to crumble and it looks a lot like Flower Soft.  Easy peasy! 
I used glue on his belly and ears and then covered it with the crumbles, worked great and at a fraction of the cost of Flower Soft.  I haven't tried coloring it yet, but I have heard that a couple drops of ink, some ink spray or even food coloring works well.  When I try it, I'll let y'all know how it works.

Thanks for stopping by today, leave me a comment if you have any questions or just to let me know what you think of this cute little guy.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
