A Blue One with lots of Facial Hair!

For this card I have used one of the great Indigo Blu stamp sets.

This will be the second blue project this morning, the first one a new blue cushion cover to replace Bowser That Naughty Schnauzer's after he decided to eat his bed.

The background was created by heat embossing one of the moustache stamps with clear embossing powder and then colouring with distress inks and Dylusions mist.  I thought it made it look a bit stubbly.

The three moustaches were made in different materials. one was stamped and embossed with UTEE.  The next was flocked - this did make it quite furry.

The third moustache was made from Fimo - as you can see I'm no expert with this and yes, I only had red clay.
After baking I coloured it with pro markers, it still looks red in the photos but looks better IRL.

I love these elements of the stamp set.

Some stamped sentiments and a UTEE bow tie.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-


  1. Those moustaches are gorgeous, like how you took the trouble to make them all different.

  2. Super use of the Indigo Blue images Rosie and a perfect masculine card.

    I have a Jack Russell who eats beds, trouble is they are never her own, always one of the Labs.
