Simon Says: Animal Antics

Hello crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Animal Antics! The design team is featuring amazing Hello Bluebird products!  It isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

I have been practicing my no-line coloring lately and have been having fun with it! I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for this fun scene featuring the Hello Bluebird Moose and Friends stamp set.

I used the Gina K. Amalgam Ink for the first time on this project and I was super happy with the result. I stamped all of my images on Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock, colored my images and die cut all of my elements.

I also used Bristol for my base panel and stamped my Hooray sentiment from the same stamp set and colored it in rainbow order. I then used my MFT Mini Cloud and Grass stencils with Salty Ocean and a mix of Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover Distress Inks. I find it easier to stencil after the initial coloring and simply avoid the colored area.

I placed all of my images on the base panel using a mix of foam tape and glue and added some gel pen detail. I made a mistake on my Moose (typical of me, lol) so I decided to give him some googly eyes instead of starting over. I find there is always a way to save my images!

I added my "champagne" colored Spica pen to add strings to my sentiment balloon and gold embossed my secondary sentiment. I die cut that sentiment using the new Mama Elephant strip dies and used foam tape to add that to the card.  

To finish off the card, I added some hearts and the new Nuvo Dream Drops (LOVE these)!
