Dexter has a romp over at PaperPlay

Hello to you!!!
Please don't groan,
but I have yet another box to share.
This has been an undertaking,
not because it's a difficult project,
but because I have been flustered,
I guess, in other words,
the mojo has left the building.

I've used the wonderful Motivet stamp,
Dexter with Present,
the papers are MME and BG,
the added present is a Jolee's sticker,
ribbons, grommets and "fibre" are from my stash.
I've coloured with watercolour pencils
and distress inks.
There is this little twinkle in Dexter's eye
that I placed a bit of Stickles in,
and I've glazed his nose, eyes and teeth.
The ribbon around Dexter's present has been
Smooched with Gold Flame,
although I don't think the picture picks that up.

I've played along with Mandy's sketch over at
PaperPlay Challenges
It was fun to use and I really liked
the ribbon for this particular project.
I've kind of moved the 2 elements near
the bottom of the sketch and used a
candy from the stamp and a present in their place.

Well, I better get this posted
so I don't miss the cut-off!!
Thanks for looking!!
