Today I have a opossum birthday card for you!
Aaaaw, the last release was one of my favorites so far. The set Friends and Couples is so cute, I love love love the opossum. I thought of different ways to use it and I came up with the idea of putting more than two opossums on the card and add the banners on a diagonal.
I think the instructions for my card are always quite similar: Stamps, color and fuzzy cute the image. This time I added some ink blending to the background and then assembled the card.
- Ink blending is an easy, fast and inexpensive way to create a subtle background. To give it some kind of frame I added some faux stitching.
- For grey animals I often use warm grey tones. I like the look of it.
- The tiny sentiments are a bit difficult to stamp. I use Versafine and am very happy with the results.
- For a little more interest I add some details with a gel pen (I use the Gelly Roll) to my image - a black one for the eyes and a white one for some dots here and there.
I can't wait to see what you will create with this cute set. Please don't forget to add the link to your projects in the sidebar.
