Cuppie Smooches - TECC52MD

H. asked "How do you do your smooch?? Do you wipe off your base ink and color it in with a marker?".
Close! In this case, I carefully applied my ink to the stamp (I used a small Memento dew drop), avoiding the smooch. I then used a water-based red marker to color in the smooch, then I stamped the entire cuppie. Hope that helps!

Today's card uses Monika's TECC52MD sketch. At first I was intimidated by it since it is a round sketch, but once I sat down to work with it, I loved working with it! My card is fairly simple, but I like how it turned out and love that it came together so quickly. I stamped my cuppie on Kraft cardstock before I colored him for a fun change of pace!

Hope you had a great weekend!
