For my project this week, I could not resist the Stampendous Sloth Cling stamp set. I am in love with Sloths and Otters, I can't get enough of them! I also (probably due to green being my favorite color) love a good jungle theme! 

I started by trimming my Neena 80lbs card panel to 4 x 5.25 and stamping my sloth using my stamp positioning tool. Once he was stamped on my panel, I looked through my stash for "filler" leaves and/or vines. I decided to go with he Mama Elephant Swinging Borders and the Hello Bluebird Jungle Littles to fill in my greenery.


Once the stamping was complete, I colored all of my images with my Copic markers. I decided once again, to add some clouds (yes, after coloring all of my images) with my trusty MFT Stencil Cloud and Salty Ocean Distress Ink. Once that was complete I decided the panel was missing a little something so I took my Simon Says Stamp Craft Frame Dies from the This is the Life release and die cut my panel with the thin frame die. I also used the same die to die cut some Tonic gold mirror cardstock (entirely inspired my Nichol Spohr).




I placed all of my frames on my card base and pieced them together. To finish off I used my Birch Press Hugs die with black glitter paper and a Lawn Fawn accompanying sentiment from the Hang In there stamp set. I then added some black and white gel pen detail to my Sloth!
