Good Morning everyone, i hope you are having a good week and keeping warm.
Today im sharing my first outing of my new Tim Holtz Hipster Animals stamps. Ive turned them into CAS male cards for the charity box. I had originally planned to completely colour the image in but after making up the card thought they worked well left mostly white, just their outfits coloured in.
6x6 card size. First stamp the image and add some colour, i used alcohol pens simply on the outfit and eyes, i added glossy accents to the spectacles. Then die cut into a wonky stitched circle.
I die cut a square and stamped the greeting, i then die cut an aperture slightly bigger than my topper, i then embossed the bigger size of wonky stitched circle around the aperture. A cheats way if you don't have a set of in/out stitched dies! Then mounted onto blue card to match his outfit with foam pads. I then added the topper again with foam pads. The 'moat' around the topper just adds some interest to this simple design.
All 4 blue circle cards.
Below a green/square version
Made exactly the same as the blue ones just using wonky stitched squares and green outfits/card instead.
Just showing all 4 of the green ones.
