A right animal!!

Hi Folks,
Not the most original of titles but accurate nonetheless! I have a card for LIM this week it's ONE LAYER and to include an animal
New stamps from Tim Holtz a NY girl and below a stamp by Stamps By Judith
Masking the figures, inking  and stamping over the masks, I know, easy peasy lemon squeezy! But I love these techniques especially for one layer cards :D

Very busy here still, I grabbed an hour to make these today, it was brilliant, I really enjoyed myself!
Thanks to the LIM girls and their great challenge with another wonderful prompt!!!!
Thank you for joining me , Hugs Gay xx

You have just 'rocked' this challenge Gay! Love both of these cards! Fantastically coloured and great unique ideas. Fabulous work and thanks so much for sharing at Less is More. The little elephant one would look great over in the gallery at AAA cards too if you fancy popping across and linking up.

Both so different and beautiful Gay, glad you managed to find time to make these, my favourite has to be the elephant, he is very cute and would cheer up anyone's day:-) xxx

Shirley said...

Okay, Gay, I have really missed your uplifting and beautiful art! These are a sample of just that! The background on the first really makes it pop and the cuteness of the second is awesome!!

The NY-girl and card looks great! Coloured in like this I like the girl; saw the stamp and thought that it look too much (and less) than the stampset I have from Stampinback (http://www.stampinback.nl/index.php?item=stampinback-kit-146-maart--fashionista&action=article&group_id=116&aid=8071&lang=NL)... Never now what kind of card you going to make; that makes it so much fun to come over here! Hugs, Gerrina

Linda R said...
