Another challenge, I do like these challenges.  This one is for the Crafters Companion blog.

Here is the sketch

There is also a theme, the card is to be for a child/teenager/young adult.  I have a friend who’s granddaughter is mad about Souffle duck so I have made a card with her in mind.

Here is my card

I stamped and coloured Souffle with Lyra watercolour crayons.  It was impossible to cut out the string without leaving white areas, I do not like white areas so I cut off the string and label. Re-stamped the string and tag onto the orange paper used for the circle background and cut it out, glued the white tag on top ot the orange  tag.  That way when I attached him to the circle there are no white areas.  If I had not cuttlebuged the circle I could just have stamped onto the circle but I wanted the texture behind him.

I also coloured the edge of the cuttlebugged circle with brown ink for a bit of definition.
