Animal Outing meets Colorful Seasons

An Animal Outing birthday card
I do struggle a bit with children's cards - but then I struggle a bit with children!

This is for a little great niece turning 3.

I started by stamping the giraffe and frog with Saddle Brown Stazon ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then added foliage, masking as I went, using the Colorful Seasons stampset (which is retiring very soon) and Free As A Bird stampset.

Then I watercoloured my little scene, taking care not to use too much water and being gentle with my strokes to preserve the integrity of the Whisper White cardstock.  The Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper would have been more suitable ... but I didn't think ahead!

The sentiment is also stamped with the Saddle Brown Stazon ink.  Then I placed layers of Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green cardstock onto my Soft Suede card base.

TIP: MASKING

  • Decide which image is to be at the front of your scene and stamp that first.
  • Stamp the same image onto the sticky part of a post it note (so that the sticky bit is on the back!)
  • Cut out this image INSIDE the lines.
  • Stick the mask you've just made on top of the corresponding image in your project
  • Stamp your next image - it will look like it's behind the first image you stamped.
  • Masking is also useful for protecting images while you sponge around them.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
