Stamp Something Friday

Here's my sample for today's challenge at Stamp Something. The theme is "In the Wild", so naturally I pulled out Wild About You and got to work.

I tried to make the animals the color they are in real life, but that made it hard to come up with a specific color combo, so I didn't! I just went with the colors of the animals and made it work. You will also notice there is no embellishment on the card (I think that's a first for me!). A couple of details: the grass was cut using a craft knife, and I just freehanded it. The elephant's eye is colored using a white gel pen, and the lion's mane was cut out and popped up on dimensionals. I made the bird red for a pop of color.


Thanks for stopping by, make sure to check out the rest of the team's samples!


Supplies: stamps - Wild About You paper - basic gray, celery, wasabi, ww, more mustard, so saffron ink - basic gray, real red classic; mustard, caramel, cocoa craft acc - craft knife, dimensionals, white gel pen
