I have been wanting to share these cards with you for a few weeks. I coloured them a couple of months ago and posted the images on Instagram and Facebook but only recently assembled them on to a card. These cards use the very cute Postcard Pals set. I have to say I was a little hesitant getting the stamp set as I am not very good at colouring. I am working on it. I saw such cute cards with them though and it may have just slipped in with an order one time. 😉
Here are the 3 cards. My daughter did point out to me that I hadn’t coloured the Platypus dude. I will do him shortly. I can’t miss him out. 🙂
Here they are close-up for you.
For this one below I have stamped the image in Black Stazon on Shimmery White card and coloured it with the Watercolour Pencils. The base card is Crushed Curry and the paper is from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper. I went around lightly in Basic Gray pencil and washed it over to add dimension to the image.
This next card is stamped on to Thick Whisper White card and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. Isn’t this beaver such a happy chappy. The Real Red card is embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder and a strip of paper from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. The card needed something else. Rather than a card mat I thought a decorative strip. I pulled out the Delicate Lace Edgelits and cut the “triangular” edge one from Pool Party card.
Now we have a happy Pelican. This one was stamped on Shimmery White and coloured with Watercolour Pencils. The sentiment was stamped on Pear Pizzazz and cut with the Stitched Shaped Framelits. I also cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits from Silver Glimmer Paper to adhere underneath this one. The white card was a bit plain so I added some “spots” from the Farmhouse Christmas set that I had out on my desk still.
I hope you like these trio. They make me smile whenever I look at them.
Have a happy day,
