Star Gazing

There isn’t anything much cuter than a little furry friend playing at night. In a reply to the As You Like It challenge, animals are definitely more fun to work with than people. I adore cute, furry friends of any kind. Animals are fun and can be colored realistic or in a fantasy based scheme, which to me, makes them more enjoyable.

This card was originally inspired by the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge. Lawn Fawn’s Upon a Star set was used for this card. I started with bristol smooth card stock and clear embossing for the circles. Then some simple inking with distressed oxide inks in wilted violet,fossilized amber, stormy sky and black soot provided the color. All of the constellations were then embossed in white. Next, I reached for my Perfect Pearls; I used the white and the forever blue. I added the powder to some water and used a tiny fan brush to pick up the liquid and “splatter” it on the card. I then pulled out Lawn Fawn’s grass border die and used it to cut the sky and the grass. Last, but not least, was the bunny. He was stamped on grey card stock and colored with Prismacolor pencils.

I hope you like it! Have a crafty Thursday, y’all!

Thanks for stopping by! Stay safe & craft!

Bon Voyage

Wouldn’t it be great to be on a cruise in the Bahamas right now? Dreaming….. Any how. This card was inspired by the CasThisSketch challenge this week. I created a stencil in the shape of the two rectangles and square using my Scan and Cut. The background is simple inking with the stencil using Distressed oxide tumbled glass, Gina K ink Sea Glass and tranquil turquoise. The stamp is from Stampersanonymous by Tim Holtz that is embossed with Black Cherry embossing powder by Emerald Creek Designs.

Stay safe and keep crafting, y’all!
