I stamped all of the images and coloured them using Copic markers. Then I stamped the images again on masking paper and covered the coloured images so I could sponge the background with distress inks.
After all of the colouring and ink blending was done, I used shimmer mist to splatter the panel. It adds a feeling of ‘magic’ to the scene, as if the bear fairy and cat witch are casting a spell on the bunny. The shimmer is hard to capture on camera but is so pretty in person.

I stamped the images from both Reading Buddies and Coffee Loving Critters in copic friendly black ink. I colored them with a ton of different copics but my overall color palette was inspired by THIS color trio.

Hi folks! Kelly here, excited to share a card made with the adorable Reading Buddies set! I actually made this card during the first release, but wanted to hold off sharing it so I could devote some time to discuss stamp selection when it comes to building a background.
This Reading Buddies set has some adorable images, like the cute critters carrying books, as well as a sweet scene of a girl reading with her forest friends. Any of these images are great to feature on a card. After you’ve played around with these on a couple of cards, however, I’d recommend taking a look at the secondary images, like the pile of books. I thought stamping the books in a pattern would make a fun background.
And, you get a completely different look to stretch your supplies!
I repeated that stamping for the bottom half of the card to complete the background. To color the books I picked several copic markers in cool tones and rotated them to balance out the colors. Colored pencils would work as well for all the thin lines. I also grabbed a few shades of cream to color the book pages.
And just like that, your background is completed! With the sentiment and the background of books, I think this card would be perfect to send someone in your book club, or a friend who enjoys reading.
Hope you enjoyed this little tip on building your own backgrounds, as well as picking out a secondary stamp, to get an entirely new look from your stamp sets!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
