Animal Antics


Just popping in very quickly with a little card that I have made for my daughter for Valentines.  Not very traditional but I have figured out that I am not a traditionalist and that's ok.  I'm going to enter this card for the current challenge over at Simon Says Stamp, which is "Animal Antics".

My card uses all Paper Smooches stamps as they have some cute animal stamps.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); designer paper (MME - Blush)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
Stamps: Paper Smooches (A Little Lovin; Pretty Phrases)
Other: dimensional foam adhesive; clear embossing powder

My card is 4 X 4 and on the front panel I have scored a margin which is covered with some pretty paper from my My Mind's Eye paper pad called Blush.  That little margin is adhered on the inside of the card.

I coloured "Natasha" with copics and then stamped the image again, coloured "Mommy", trimmed and adhered her with dimensional adhesive, I wanted to give the impression of nurturing and protecting my little girl, which is what I love to do most!

I hope you like it!  Thanks for coming by to take a peek and have a wonderful day!
