JAI #353: Just Add Critters


Gee wiz! I can't believe it's the end of March already! I actually nearly typed February just then instead of March - it's been such a busy start to the year that I'm completely losing track.

I did remember that it's Friday though, which means it's time for the new Just Add Ink challenge. This week Karren has challenged us to Just Add Critters. I can tell you that the Design Team had some fun with this one - there's some really cool critter cards on the main blog.

Other than butterflies and dragonflies, I really didn't have a lot of animal stamps, so it was a good excuse to splash out and finally purchase the Foxy Friends bundle. I had this idea for a card in my head all week, and when I sat down to make it, the result was exactly what I'd hoped for.

What do you think? I think it looks much better in real life - the Emerald Envy cardstock didn't photograph well, so it looks much more subdued that it actually is. I wanted bright, so I went with Tempting Turquoise, Emerald Envy, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango.

I had to break up all of the bright colours with splashes of Whisper White. Without it I think the colours would fight each other a bit, rather than sitting nicely together. I hand cut the curved horizon from my Emerald Envy cardstock, adhered a piece of Whisper White behind it, and then hand trimmed the WW to match the EE.

I'm not sure what I'll use this card for yet - maybe a child's birthday card. For now I'll leave it blank. I can easily stamp an inside sentiment later on.

What critters do you have hiding in your stash? Why don't you bring them out to play? Link your card over at the Just Add Ink blog so we can see what you create.

Bye for now,
