Animal Antics!

Well I ended up working all weekend and haven't had a chance to update my last post.  I promise I will do that in a couple of days.  I did however find a couple of hours to spend in my studio tonight.  So I decided to check out the Simon Says challenge.  Fortunately for me the challenge this week is Animal Antics...I also needed to make a masculine card so this worked out perfectly.  

I decided to use one of my favourite stamps I haven't used in months.  The stamp is from the Local King "Safari Animals 2" set.  I actually think the last time I used this stamp I coloured it with my prisma markers so it has probably been over a year since I used it (Yikes!!).  Anyhow, this time I coloured it with my copics (E30, 33, 35 - YR21 & Y00).  I also used a clear glaze pen and black glaze pen on his eyes.  I edged all the papers with versa magic jumbo java and stamped the greeting with memento espresso truffle.  The greeting is from the C.C. Designs Amy R "It's Your Birthday" stamp set.  I used a cuttlebug embossing folder on the background paper, I think it is called "mesh" and a few bronze brads for a little more embellishment.  I wanted to keep it clean and simple.  The picture doesn't show the colours well, looks much better in person.

Well that's it for tonight, long day at work tomorrow!  Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by.

This is fabulous! Love the image and the embossed background really adds to the 'animal' feel! Thank you for playing along in our Animal Antics challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. :)
