Hey everyone. Today’s card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
The theme for the challenge is ANIMAL ANTICS. I was hopping along the STAMPtember Blog Hop over at Simon Says Stamp and I came across this card from Jennifer McGuire. It totally blew my mind and I was in awe of her creative genius. I immediately fell in love with it and decided to try the same technique. Jennifer used the Lots of Dots set and the Big Hello die cut. I did not have any of those products with me so I had to improvise.
Here is my card —
I started the card with some Bazzill Basics card stock in Feather Boa folded to a standard size card and I used some Strathmore water color paper for a white panel.
I had a stencil of a bird and a heart that I recently got from Hobby Lobby that I thought would work great. Now for the dots…I originally thought of using a stylus to make the dots but then I saw the berries in the SSS Life is a Journey stamp set that I thought would work well. So I started stamping. I divided the bird into 6 parts so I could change colors easily. I used different Hero Arts shadow inks – Pale Tomato, Fresh Peach, Soft Cantaloupe, Butter Bar, Soft Pool and Tide Pool in that order. After I stamped the dots, I used my stylus to fill in some areas that were bare. I also used one of the hearts using the same technique in Pale Tomato Ink.
For the sentiment, I used one from the Hero Arts OWH Year Round Sentiments. I embossed it in silver embossing powder. To finish off the card, I adhered the white panel onto the card stock base with some foam adhesives.
