Challenge #28 from the Digi Makeover Challenge team is from an Inspirational photo: spring colors

I thought Chomps, from Paper Makeup Stamps, was just the cutest thing eating a flower.   I've been seeing a number of white on white projects lately and that's what I decided to do for this spring card.

After coloring Chomps with Copics, I fussy cut him out and adhered him to my first layer.  This was actually a piece of junk mail that I had received a few days earlier.  (For once, something useful.)  The background was plain cream, so I added clouds and a sky with chalks.  This is matted onto a piece of white copy paper spritzed with Smooch Spritz (vanilla ice), which looks very shimmery behind Chomps. The green strip is distressed with Paper Soft Colors (lime green) and the brads are colored with Copics to match the pink flower Chomps is eating.  The base cardstock is embossed with leaves, although they are difficult to see.

Head on over to the Digi Makeover Challenge blog to enter your photo inspired project.  Don't forget, you must use a digi and follow this week's theme.  Check out the rest of the design team's creations for lots more inspiration.

I'm entering this in the following challenge: Mark's Finest Papers (CAS).

Smooch: Gold Lame, Illuminate

I have to tell you that I think this card is pure genius! Love the dimension you get by cutting Chomps out and wow, such realistic shading. How did you do the flower field look under his feet?
