Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing a card with a sneak peek of a stamp set being released later on this month for Gerda Steiner Designs. I was honored to be asked again to be a guest designer for them.
This set is called Party Animals 4x6 Clear Stamp Set by Gerda Steiner Designs and is being released on March 22nd along with more stamps and dies. Make sure to check it out!!

Aren't these critters just so fun??

I started the card by stamping the cake, using some post it notes and masking the cake then stamping the lion to the left and the crocodile to the right to look like he is holding the cake. Next I stamped the gift to the left hand side of the card, making sure I left room for the rhino and masked the gift. Then I stamped the rhino and the ostrich. Before I colored the images, I masked them all to create the background. For the background, I made a 'ground' for the critters by masking a line with post-it tape. I added some Mustard Seed distress ink to the horizon and blended that into
Broken China distress ink for the blue sky.

For the ground portion,
I just moved the tape to the sky portion
and added some Gathered Twigs distress ink.
Then I was able to color the images with copic markers, I added some white and black gel pen accents. To the candle on the cake and the ribbon on the gifts, I added some shimmer.
Finally, I stamped and then heat embossed the sentiments from the stamp set.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the gorilla
and added a gift on top of his head for fun.
For this, I stamped the gift first,
masked the gift, then stamped the gorilla.
Finally, I copic colored these images.
