For this challenge I thought I would use one of my favorite stamps and revisit an old design and change things up a bit. The stamp is from the Safari Animal 2 set by Local King and I used MFT Hybrid ink Hot Fudge to stamp it. I colored the images with copic markers (E21, E23, E25, E29, YR23 & Y35) then I put a layer of glossy accents over the eyes. I edged the image with versa magic jumbo java ink and distressed the edges and layered the image on 3 different layers of card stock. I embossed the background piece with the "mesh" cuttlebug folder and used a little bit of Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink to add a bit of an aged look to it.
For the first card I finished it with some rhinestones and used the paper smooches "happy birthday 2" wise dies to make the greeting. I cut the greeting out 3 times and stacked them together to make it stand out a bit.
I got this order from Simon Says about a month ago. I needed to get some card stock and adhesives and I couldn't resist adding some new stamps and dies as well!
I will endeavor to do another challenge this week, I may even make it to 3 posts in the same month...LOL!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend everyone!
