Hello there crafty friends! Today I'm joining my fellow Cat Pack teamies as we share inspiration to kick-off the new TCP Tuesday Challenge: ANIMALS! TCP has a TON of adorable animal sets so it was quite a challenge to narrow it down. I decided to go with this adorable sea-life set complete with cute seahorses, whales, crabby critters, snail characters and of course, mermaids! Hey Gillfriend is a sweet set, dontcha think?!
I started out by stamping the watercolor background using the waves in the set. I added Tombow watercolor markers directly to the stamp and added some water to mute it down. After that, I stamped the seahorses, shell creature and the mermaid and then colored them with watercolor pencils. I fussy cut each image and attached it to the watercolor panel. I also created a colorful paper pattern to allow for my Wave CutUps to really make waves.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this card inspires you to grab some critter stamps and play along with us this month! Hop over to the TCP Blog and join the fun! You just might be the lucky winner to win a $50 voucher to the shop!
