You know, sometime you come across a company that you just fall in love with the moment you find out about them. I fall in love with Lawn Fawn stamps from the very beginning. As soon as I saw their stamps, I just LOVE them. I guess because their stuff is so my style. And, when I met Kelly that just made me love it even more. She's such a nice person.
PS: I do not get paid to write this, nor do I receive any benefit from them. It's simly that I love the company and love supporting great company.
I still remember my very first set was Critters In The 'Burb and I used them for my 2010 Gallery Idol finale. I was stumped and didn't know what to make, and Lawn Fawn stamp showed up on my door, and I knew immediately what I wanted to make. So, Lawn Fawn definitely hold a special place in my heart.Yesterday I saw Lawnscaping challenge 5 which is to use stamp in unconventional way (for example, use Christmas stamp to make birthday card, etc.) and I know right away I want to play!!
What a super fun challenge! And their DT creations were so inspiring, I can't help but play right away. :) And again, I turned to Critters In The 'Burb. For me, this set makes me thing of spring or summer and definitely land stuff. So, I decided to use them for water related card. My very own version of Noah's Ark.
Granted, the usual Noah's Ark has giraffe, lions, all kind of exotic animals. Well, as much as we all love our pets, I figure a Noah's Ark of our pets in a pair would work just as well. Squirrels as pets?? Oh yes, we used to owned 2 of them when we were kids. Snails... why not?
Here's a side up-close to show you the layering details. There are tons of layering and paper piecing here, so I am entering this card for Moxie Fab Paper Piecing challenge as well.
And, in case you didn't notice, to make the female pets, I added eyelashes on them, except for the bird and the snail. I couldn't find my super fine micro pen, which I think is necessary for fine drawing.
I couldn't decide whether I want to add water border or not as I don't want the card to look too crowded. The way hubby says it, "This is when they just loading the animal in before the rain start or like in the movie Noah's Ark, before the dam broke!" LOL.
Hope you like this card. 'Cause I do. Me and cute animal stuff go hand in hand like cheesecake and strawberry topping. :)
Tomorrow, I'll share another card I made that I also love. If today is Lawn Fawn day, tomorrow it's Hero Arts day!! Take care y'all. Hm... the Texans in me just slip out! :)
