Simon Says Stamp - Animal Antics
Lawnscaping - These are a few of my favorite things
I used one of my favorite new Lawn Fawn stampsets, and made a square 4 1/4" card. I also used my favorite coloring medium, Copic markers =)
Before I show you the card, I wanted to tell you about my reaction when I first saw this stampset released. I absolutely fell in love with the cute deer, but after looking at it for a few seconds, I thought something looked a litte bit... off. I realized that to my eye, the deer was missing an ear, and it looked a litte bit weird. Cute, and totally pretty, but also in a way a little strange. So, when I got the set in my hands, I decided to use some masking to give the deer a second ear. I wanted to show you quickly the process, so I took some pictures while I was doing it (after having tried it out to make sure it worked =)
First, I stamped the deer normally on my cardstock
Then, I masked the entire deer off with masking paper
I also added some extra masking paper to make sure everything I needed covered up, was covered up.
I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to lign up the second ear
And then I inked up the ear portion of the stamp, and stamped it down
I removed the masks, and voila!
Here's a comparison of the original deer and a two-eared deer
And a comparison of the two with an added sequin/small flower
Here's how my finished card turned out:
After stamping the deer, I colored it in with Copics. I stamped the hello speech bubble in black, and cut off the point to make it a sign instead. I drew in two little lines with a marker to make it look like the deer is holding the sign, curved the sign a bit, and adhered only the top portion to the card to keep it curved. I rounded the top corners, adhered the image piece, and added some pink twine as well. I hardly never use twine, but felt that this card really needed some =)
