Grad Time - Squeal!

Completely by accident I discovered that this little grad cap confetti fits the hamster from Paper Smooches. OH YES.

Supplies: stamps from Paper Smooches (except edge - PTI); Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels - yellow daisy, starfish, key lime, turquoise; Distress inks in Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade; Versamark; Stampendous black detail embossing powder; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Stampendous  Fun Flock; Spectrum Noir markers; Sharpie


The hamster has a fuzzy belly, naturally. With a teeny dimensional the grad cap is perched on his/her head, and the hamster is squealing with glee to be finished at last. 

The edge was done with a small flower stamp from PTI - I love the bit of interest it gives as a border, and by overlapping the impressions it gives a sort of abstract look. In my opinion, anyway. The hammy panel is edged with Sharpie to help it stand out.

Since The Pink Elephant is having a graduation challenge this week, I'm popping it in the linky over there - why don't you come play too?!

xoxo,
Jessi

This ROCKS! That flower border is so cool - totally abstract as you said. Nice way to get more use out of a flower stamp. :) The little grad cap is such a perfect fit and I love the fuzzy belly!

SQUEAL is right!!!!! Oh, how I LOVE your googly-eyed hamster grad. He looks dashing in his mortarboard! Love that colorful, confetti-like background you gave him. :)

I'm wondering if it's the spattered background, his googly eyes or the fuzzy belly that made me smile the most, it's another fab fun design Jessi!
