Simon Says Stamp Challenge...Animal Antics Challenge & Stampabilites...Little One...!

Photobucket



Happy hump day crafty friends! Yup! It is Wednesday and we are that much closer to the weekend whoo hoo! It is also time for another fun challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge! WOWZERS!!! You all really loved the Bingo challenge that we had last week...such an impressive turn out! I loved that challenge too.....so much fun! Well, this week the challenge is equally as fun! We would like to see some Animal Antics and the DT are featuring Stampabilities stamps...so pull out your Happy Hoppers, House Mouse and Gruffies stamps and any other Stampabilities stamps if you have them or any other animal stamps you have and join us for some animal antics.

We also have a fabulous prize this week....a whopping $50 voucher for the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!!! You can stock up on a lot of fab new crafty goodies from the Simon Says Stamp Superstore with that....how fun!!!


For my card I used this sweet Happy Hoppers stamp! I always admire others' ability to colour animal stamps but for some reason I really struggle colouring them myself. So, I did my best colouring up, this super cute image from Happy Hoppers collection called Love Bunny, with my Copics but I am afraid I didn't really do it justice. I used some pretty BoBunny Olivia papers with one of my fave colour combos, peachy pink and hunter green...these were my wedding colours and I still live this combo. One of the papers had the fab sentiment right on it....I added a Melissa Frances rub-on from the Baby Boy Transfers sheet to the image. I cut the image out with my Square Nesties and I inked with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I added some Crinkled seam binding and a BasicGrey Button from my stash!

Here is the inside....I used one of my favourite Baby acrylic stamp sets by Fancy Pants called Little Star.

Delightful papers & I love thosecolours with the Hunter Green & brilliantly accented with that dark button. I love the texture you've coloured into the mice & the different colours work so well (I cannot fault your animal colouring either). The striped paper is such a lovely touch too & I love your use of words.
