Stella - Happy Meds
This new stamp stamp set called Stella - Happy Meds from Sparkle N Sprinkle should definitely make you smile. It's one of the new Bugaboo images that is now available in rubber, only from Sparkle N Sprinkle!
After stamping the image and coloring it with Copic markers, I added Dimensional Glue and Sunny Daze glitter to various letters. I also outlined other words with a red Multi-liner to make them pop a bit more. The pink pills and Stella's glasses were covered with Glossy Accents for a real shine.
To create the mat, I used the lacy background technique with Sticker Paper, lace, and Sunny Daze and Blue Haze glitters. This is such an easy and fun technique and with so many variations, depending on the style of lace and the colors of glitter you use. For some reason, this one reminds me of a leopard print, even though the colors are different.
For embellishments, I created my own glitter ribbon using 1/2" Tear-ific tape and Blue Haze glitter and added a few Nuvo Crystal Drops (Navy Blue) as accents. Crystal Drops also accent the corners of my lacy background. The background matting behind the focal point was dry embossed with a Crafters Companion embossing folder (Hessian) for a bit of texture.
