An Animal Outing Double Challenge
I recently got this great stamp set during the Online Extravaganza called Animal Outing. It is so adorable and also comes with the Animal Friends Thinlit dies as a bundle…yep, gotta love Bundles! (click on the picture if you gotta have it, too!)
I have been wanting to make a card using this set and just wasn’t getting a color combo idea in my head, so off to The Color Throwdown Challenge site, I went! And they had this great color combo that I probably wouldn’t have thought of myself!
For my colors I used So Saffron, Old Olive, and Basic Black, plus I needed Smokey Slate (you’ll see why).
Then, I figured I needed a sketch to really help my creative juices roll, so I went to CAS(E) this Sketch, another favorite challenge blog of mine, and found this lovely sketch:
And then the creative juices started pouring out of my head and I came up with this card that I think is so stinking cute!!
I ended up turning it on it’s side and then it just came together and I love it! What do you think? Isn’t that rhino a cutie?
For the card base and branches I used Old Olive cardstock. I used Versamark for the background inking of the branches. So Saffron cardstock for the sentiment portion and the bird on the rhino’s horn. Then I used Basic Black cardstock for the Stitched Cirlce Framelit, another regularly used and favorite framelit set! Plus, I used Tuxedo Black ink for the distressing around the card base, smudging of the sentiment piece, and for the sentiment itself. Then I added Smokey Slate cardstock for the rhino cutout and Basic Gray ink for the rhino image.
Well? Let me know what you think of this card! I haven’t done a sentiment on the inside yet because I am thinking of making it a Valentine’s card…the sentiment makes me think of that…we’ll see!
