Clean + Simple Sunday: Animal Outing
Back again today for another Clean & Simple Sunday card! The video for this one is posted right HERE.
I just love this Animal Outing set! Very versatile with the sentiments that are included. It's great for BIG thanks, but it's also great for baby cards with the sentiment "welcome little one" included and the "we make a great pair" for anniversary or valentine cards. It includes such sweet images that are perfect for coloring with our Stampin' Blends alcohol markers!!
I used the nesting square dies to create the base for the focal panel in Calypso Coral and Whisper White. I cut some foliage out of the die included in the Animal Friends die set using Granny Apple Green card stock. The sentiment strip was cut from Petal Pink card stock and stamped in Calypso Coral ink. I used the Smokey Slate light and dark Blends markers to color in most of the rhino. For his horn I used a combo of light Smokey slate for the shading and then light Crumb Cake for the rest of his horn. The bird was colored using dark Daffodil Delight for his beak and the Balmy Blue duo for his body. The Blends markers make for quick, easy coloring!
Once the coloring was completed I layered the elements together on the card front using wet adhesive (multipurpose glue) and dimensional (foam) adhesive. The layering of elements adds subtle interest to this clean and simple design.
