Your Next Stamp Challenge 68


I'm popping in with my card for the Your Next Stamp Challenge 68, there's still a week left to play along! I went with the color challenge instead of the sketch and got out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color the Silly Monsters and Party Animals stamp sets. I might be physically incapable of using a monster stamp without adding googly eyes. #sorrynotsorry. monsters need googly eyes. ☺

I stamped everything on some Bristol watercolor paper and then colored it with my Zigs, I kept the colors to 5 different markers (I didn't have the perfect shade of pink so the lighter pink was done with two different shades) and lots of water. I fussy cut everything out and added some fun texture with a wink of stella shimmer pen, glossy accents, and of course, googly eyes. I also added some thread for the balloon strings. I used some distress ink to watercolor my background and added my my sentiment to the base before I glued everything down. It was time consuming with all of the painting and cutting but pretty simple overall.

Go check out some more inspiration at the Your Next Stamp Blog and play along in the challenge!

Your Next Stamp Design Team Dare


Today's card is for the Design Team Dare over at Your Next Stamp; the theme was "It's A Boy Thing" using one of the re-release stamp sets. I used Cat Nap and added the cake and sentiment from Party Animals for a fun and simple card!

Glossy Accents make everything more fun ♥

I stamped the cake on a piece of Neenah Cardstock and masked it off with masking paper to stamp the cat and then masked off the cat to ink up my "floor" with Distress Inks. I stamped the thought bubble, fish, and sentiment and then added in all of my coloring with Copics. I embellished it a little with some Wink of Stella shimmer, Glossy accents, a Crystal Nuvo drop for the fish's eye, some baker's twine, and some Tiny Attacher staples. I finished the card by adhering the panel to a dark brown card base with some foam!

Make sure to head over to the Your Next Stamp Blog to check out the other fun projects!
