Yesterday we celebrated our 19th Wedding Anniversary. I used the perfect stamp set called Animal Outing to create this card.
This new stamp set has a frog which of course is my part of HIPPOFROG.
Due to the lack of a hippo in this stamp set, I’ve chosen the giraffe instead. As my husband is 6’6″ it’s quite appropriate. Plus, there were jokes at our wedding about me needing to stand on a milk crate (and I’m quite tall!)
Also, our wedding reception was at the local safari park, so an animal card ticks all the boxes.
I’ve stamped using the new Gray Granite inkpad and coloured using Watercolor Pencils. I also decided to use a Blender Pen to soften the colouring but had to take care not to smudge the ink as it it is waterbased.
The Lemon Lime twist background has more leaves stamped on it – taking care not to stamp the frog again. When it came to the sentiment I used the Classic Label Punch to create the banner pieces and layered the whole piece onto Baker’s Twine.
By using the Layering Ovals Framelits, the focus is on the foreground pair.
As I didn’t need a post-friendly card, I’ve used Dimensionals for most of the layers to create depth.
Finally, Jar of Love provided me with the heart which I’ve covered with Wink of Stella.
Animal Outing has 10 stamps in the set for just £20 for Clear Mount, and I’ve used just 3 of them on this project.
Make sure you get your hands on this lovely set that is great for colouring.
