It's Not All Black and White

Exciting News!

Guess what?!? Yeah, I hate when people say that too. So I'll just tell you. I've joined the ultra talented Lizzie Anne Design Team! I am so jazzed about this, because I love their stamps already. I'm sure I'll be having lots of exciting LAD stuff in the months to come.

Here's one I put together today. I think it will be perfect for my good friend's upcoming baby shower. I stamped the hippo and monkey, then masked them and stamped the giraffe and elephant. I stamped the hippo and leaves on scrap paper to cut out and layer for dimension. Everything's colored with Copic markers, except the grass. I think that's supposed to be the giraffe's mane, but it makes great grass too when stamped with celery and olive. Then I ran over it with a water brush to blend a bit.

What's In It?
Stamps: Born To Be Wild (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: white (Papertrey Ink); chocolate chip (Stampin' Up!); Cowboy (Crate Paper)
Ink: certainly celery, old olive (SU!); graphite black (Brilliance)
Accessories: Copic markers; Rectangle Nestabilities dies (Spellbinders); light blue gingham ribbon (SU!); dimensionals


Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my news!
