Good morning everyone, and welcome to another weekly Allsorts Challenge. This week Lorraine (Lolo) has chosen the theme which is
*** Allsorts of Animals ***
This week's two fab prizes are both animal themed - an AALL & Create stamp set #155 "Love Birds", and a Bee Crafty Jungle Animals stamp set.
Here's my card for this week.
I decided to continue "getting back to my roots" in line with Thursday's card - that is to say I broke out another of my first love Penny Black old wood-mounted stamps. This is one of the earliest PB hedgies I ever bought - you may notice he even features in my blog header!!
I stamped my image onto a square of stamping card and coloured with Promarkers. I stamped my sentiment (which I have also had for many years, and which has possibly never even seen ink before!!), then added a little background stencilling with Distress Oxide inks. I matted the panel simply and added a trio if sparkly gems plus some Glossy Accents to the flower centres, and I was done.
Stamps: Penny Black "Hedgehog Bouquet" (1444K); sentiment - Hero Arts "Smiles and Laughter";
Media: Promarkers; Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo); Memento ink (black); Versafine Clair (Twilight);
Tools: Sweet Dixie stencil - "Petal Burst";
Gems from my stash.
