Cuddly Koalas~My Favorite Things

Hey everyone!  I have two cards to share using the super cute stamp and die set from MFT, Cuddly Koalas.  I had so much fun playing with this set...I couldn't stop!  For my first card, I kept it simple and colored the sweet images with Copic Markers, then popped on a card panel.  For the the card panel, I had just blended a bit of pigment ink and splattered with Gansai Tambi Watercolors.

For my next card, I wanted to make the Koalas climb up the tree.  So I made a slider card, which is pretty easy when you have the dies to work with.  First I made the sunset background, by blending pigment inks.  I think I would have liked this better if I had used distress inks...but I'm out of watercolor paper, lol!  Then I splattered some white and gold specks with Gansai Tambi Watercolors  Then I used the slider die to create a track for the Koalas to slide on.  I colored all the images with Copic markers, and used Copic markers around the border of the tree to hide the white border the die left.  I used glossy accents and a white gel pen to add detail to all of my Koalas.
