I'm also joining the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is Anything Goes.
I had on my desk a sweet Anita Jeram/Colorado Craft company stamp set that I was planning to use for an upcoming DT assignment and thought this cute little guy would work perfectly for Ann's challenge.
Our little guinea pig is out and about in the yard and he's doubly lucky because he found a 4-leaf clover and made a new friend! I started by lightly ink blending a panel of white card stock with green, then stamped the sentiment and the critters. The panel was die cut with a arch shaped die, then I used a light hand to add blue ink for the sky with a small blending brush. The guinea pig and dragonfly (I think that's what it is supposed to be???) were colored with Copic markers, then I added a bit of shimmer to the shamrock and the dragonfly wings.
Next a panel of white cardstock was die cut with a leaf cover die, then adhered to the white cardbase. I like the subtle pattern while still leaving plenty of white space. Before adhering the main image, the accompanying sentiment "...hard to find and lucky to have!" was stamped on the inside of the card, then the die cut piece was added to the front with foam tape. Super easy and simple!
Thanks for taking time to visit! Take care and have a great weekend!
