I had a whole bunch of half-thought out ideas of masculine cards I could create but somehow nothing really caught my interest. Then I came across a stamp set which I picked up quite a while ago and put aside. It's funny! It's cute! To my mind it was the perfect choice for this week's challenge. I hope you like it, too.
The set comes as one stamp with this trio of laughing animals and, of course, a nice selection of sentiments from which to choose. There is something about these three that tickles my "funny bone". I had fun colouring them with my Stampin' Blends, too. For the background, I just "scribbled" around the animals using the Light So Saffron. The ground is coloured using the Light Gray Granite. The zebra is coloured with the Basic Black and Light Flirty Flamingo. The giraffe also has some Light Flirty Flamingo and then the body is Light Crumb Cake covered over with Light Pumpkin Pie. Finally, the elephant is coloured using the Smoky Slate with touches of Flirty Flamingo.
I used a base of So Saffron, a matte of Gray Granite and then stamped on Whisper White. It's a light-hearted card. I love it and hope you do, too.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
