PP396 Animal Antics

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week our sweet team member from across the pond, Joanne, is hostess with a theme challenge: Animal Antics.

My critters are up to some antics, I'd say! Fun ones though - a critter birthday party. No complicated techniques here. i just stamped my images, colored with markers, and lightly sponged a background using a new-to-me stamp set, Elphie Selfie. 

I'm adding my card to the gallery at The 30 Day Coloring Challenge, and at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge it's Anything Goes. 

Stamp Sets: Elphie Selfie, So Much to Say, Happy Happy Happy (Lawn Fawn)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Pint Sized Patterns (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Tumbled Glass Distress Ink (Ranger)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dies (MFT), Elphie Selfie Dies, Happy Happy Happy Dies (Lawn Fawn)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

Hi Sandy, I was wondering if you were doing the 30 Day color challenge, knowing how much you enjoy coloring. I'm so bad . . . I colored a bunch of balloons on the inside of a card and my daughter said, "Oh you colored!" Cute stamp set too!
