Today's card uses one of my favorite stamp sets from Stampin' Up!'s new catalog - Animal Outing! It features some adorable animals in a fun, sketched style along with some great sentiments.
This card is for this week's color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches blog. Wei picked some fun colors this week:
Please join us at the challenge - it is loads of fun and we love seeing what everyone creates!
For my card, I used an aqua painter and the ink to color the image. I stamped it in the old SU Archival Black ink, but any waterproof black ink will work. To make the branch less bright I used a combination of orange and green.
I used the Stitched Shapes framelits and a stack of Circles in Melon Mambo to give a little color and depth to the medallion. For the leaves on the side panel, I used scrap paper as a mask for the left side, then I tapped just one side the same frog/branch stamp in Garden Green randomly along the right side. I added a thin strip of the green to finish it off.
