Animal Magic Challenge

Hi Crafters,

With life continually throwing me curve balls. It's been hard to craft. I have recently had to move and I wasn't able to take NEARLY as much supplies as I would've liked to. I tried to focus on those stamp  sets that were pretty universal. I had lost my crafty mojo dealing with life.

I recently started to look back into craft challenges, which is always a good way to get those creative juices flowing again. I was able to get back into crafty things, thanks to this cute little card using the Wild Thang stamp set from Tiddly Inks.

Look at this cute little guy (or gal!)

I used Copic Markers to color him in, white pigment ink to stamp the foot prints, and set all the layers off using gold embossing power. I used the Copic Marker in YG17 to color my pearl embellishments. That's a great tip if you don't have pearls or sequins in a color you need. Just color them up using alcohol markers, make sure that you are using a clear or simi-clear base to start with.

I am entering this card into the Crafty Sentiments Challenge: Anything Goes, Tiddly Inks Challenge: Animal Magic, Mojo Monday: 487 Card Sketch, and The Daily Marker: 30 Day Color Challenge #7.
