From Farm to Zoo.....
Today I have a double post for you all. My first card is for Little Red Wagon #382, which is Down On the Farm.
I believe I will also enter this for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Anything goes.
For this card I used stamps as follows. The sheep are from Inkadinkado, The sentiment is an unknown, The dots around the sentiments are a stubby stamp from Stamps by Judith. The clock is from a Layers of Life kit from Unity Stamps, and my grass was made with and Art Impressions grass stamp. The fence is a Martha Stewart border punch. I added blue sticky pearls as accents. I used assorted inks and Copic markers to color.
There is nothing like ripping the sheep out of the barn so they can be counted on a sleepless night!
Next, we visit the zoo, with this fun card I made for a co-worker. This kid was fresh out of HS and one of the biggest clutz's I have ever known. He broke everything he touched and would trip and fall constantly. We use to say he was like an elephant on roller skates... well I had one on ice skates and so I went with it!
I made this for the current challenge at Cuttlebug Mania, called It's a Zoo Out There! My elephant is from Rubber Cottage and was stamped an cut out with my stitched oval dies from MFT. The Ka-Boom stamp is unmounted and unknown. My background was created with a Tim Holtz Shatter stencil, which I borrowed from a friend. It was mounted on a soft sand base. Sticky prisma gems were added to look a little icy. I used assorted inks for distressing and Copic markers for coloring.
Sorry this post is so long. Thanks for seeing it through. Have a wonderful Thursday!
