AAA Cards Challenge #116: 4th birthday bash


This fortnight we're celebrating our 4th birthday, yay. we have a lot of different sponsor, so be sure to check the AAA Cards Challenge website.

For my card I used Versafine Onyx black ink to stamp sentiment and giraffe from Gerda Steiner (Go wild set) one watercolor paper and colored them with Talens Ecoline, a fluid watercolor.

Added googly eyes and then mounted the watercolor panel with tape runner to the cardbase.

I've also made a card with Newton's Nook Raccoon Rascals as Newton's Nook is one of our wonderful sponsors.
I stamped the image and sentiments from the set with My Favorite Things (also a sponsor) Black Licorice ink onto the Crafter's Companion Neenah paper and colored the little rascals with Spectrum Noir and Illustrator markers. Mounted the panel with foamtape to a cardbase.


For more information, more DT examples or to play along the AAA Cards Challenge, see this.
