Simon Says Animal Magic


I have a fun card today that began with a piece of watercolor paper and some assorted Ranger distress inks. I randomly sponged on colors of Blueprint Sketch, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Spun Sugar and Citron inks. I stamped the SSS dog "Simon" on regular cardstock, colored it, added sunglasses and fussy cut it. Before adding the Lil Inker die-cut sun, I added some steamy rays of sun, stamped with a Market Street Stamps (now closed) background stamp and some Brilliance Platinum Planet pigment ink. Here's a close up of the sun rays.......


I added a SSS sentiment cut with a stitched circle die, and some die-cut grass and called this one done.

I'm sharing this one over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is "Animal Magic."

Thanks for stopping by and make it a good day!

Well, you've summed up the weather perfectly here. I love your sunshiney background on this card. So neat looking and reflects (no pun intended) the sun's shining so well. You definitely need shades.

Fabulous background for that darling little doggie. I'm pretty sure he knows that sentiment is meant for him and not the weather. LOL Have a good day.
