Well I ended up working all weekend and haven't had a chance to update my last post. I promise I will do that in a couple of days. I did however find a couple of hours to spend in my studio tonight. So I decided to check out the Simon Says challenge. Fortunately for me the challenge this week is Animal Antics...I also needed to make a masculine card so this worked out perfectly.
I decided to use one of my favourite stamps I haven't used in months. The stamp is from the Local King "Safari Animals 2" set. I actually think the last time I used this stamp I coloured it with my prisma markers so it has probably been over a year since I used it (Yikes!!). Anyhow, this time I coloured it with my copics (E30, 33, 35 - YR21 & Y00). I also used a clear glaze pen and black glaze pen on his eyes. I edged all the papers with versa magic jumbo java and stamped the greeting with memento espresso truffle. The greeting is from the C.C. Designs Amy R "It's Your Birthday" stamp set. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder on the background paper, I think it is called "mesh" and a few bronze brads for a little more embellishment. I wanted to keep it clean and simple. The picture doesn't show the colours well, looks much better in person.
Well that's it for tonight, long day at work tomorrow! Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by.
