The theme for this challenge is – ANIMAL ANTICS. They are featuring Lawn Fawn stamps – and I love LF so much 🙂 so I decided to also use LF stamps since they have many cute animal images.
Here is my card —
I started this card with some Bazzill Basics card stock in Feather Boa folded to a standard size card with the fold on top. I recently purchased a pack of note cards from Studio G with different kind of die cut images on the card. This particular one had a talk bubble as its die cut. I cut the card to a narrow panel and distressed the entire frontof the panel with some Angel Pink ink from Memento with a sponge dauber.
One of my favorite Lawn Fawn set is the Critters in the Forest and I always keep going back to that set. I love the owl, bird and the hedgehog. I stamped the log and hedgehog and stamped the bird on top of the hedgehog a couple of times to make it look like they are standing on top of each other trying to reach the talk bubble. Then I colored the entire image with some American Crafts Chromatix Markers. I am trying very hard to learn how to blend alcohol markers and I am still a work in progress. I will eventually get Copics when I think I am good enough and it will be worth the expense. 🙂
Every time you order directly from LF’s website, with your order they send a thank you stamp that can also be used with your projects. One of the stamps I received is the talk bubble thanks stamp and I thought it would be perfect for the card since there was already the die cut talk bubble image on the panel. I used VersaMark ink and white embossing powder from Martha Stewart. I stamped the sentiment directly on the Feather Boa card stock approximately where the die cut from the panel would be.
Then I adhered the panel using foam adhesives. I chose a floral pink toned pattern paper from Basic Grey’s Out of Print collection. I cut the paper into 2 1/4 strips of paper and adhered them close together. To finish the card, I rounded the bottom edges.
