Who's your mummy?!

Ok ok, that was bad! But this mummy is oh so cute! You can find this CC Design Sugar Plum at All That Scraps. He's stamped on Neenah Solar Crest White and colored with Copics.

I saw several samples of this card where strips of white paper were used on the background panel to replicate the wrap of the mummy and I loved it so I tried my own. I tore strips of white paper using the edge of a deckle ruler and then distressed them with some Black Soot Distress Ink. I used a Nestie tag to cut out the sentiment and secured it with two Doodlebugs Sugared Brads and some twine I colored black with a Copic marker. The dot paper is from Bo Bunny.

Well at least it's not Monday! Have a good one!
