Hi peeps! Welcome to day 2 of Honey Bee Stamps Cheerful Love Blog Hop!
Of course, we have fun giveaway, too. Be sure to visit each blog & leave a comment to be entered to win!!! We will be giving away two $30 gift cards to the Honey Bee Stamps store, one from each day. The winners will be posted on our blog Tuesday, February 27th.
Let's get on with my card, shall we? I just love, love this cutie patootie platypus. Mind you, I love stuff animals and one of my favorite back from when I was in junior high was a white platypus. So, when I saw this Penny Platypus, it sure brings back lots of memories and I enjoy playing with this set.
For the background I made my own background by mixing some alcohol inks and swipe them back and forth. Pretty color combo, right? I used Tim Holtz alcohol ink in Amethyst, Sail Boat Blue, Turquoise and Citrus with silver mixative.
Then I stamp, die cut and color the platypus and adhere it to the card base with pop dots. Then stamp the sentiment from Ridiculously Happy set. At first, I was going to leave the card the way it is, but then I remember this awesome bling, bling called Wedding Ring Rhinestone that I haven't get to try. So, naturally I had to use it since I think it compliment the card perfectly.
I am also entering this card to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of making your own background.
In case you're wondering why my platypus look slightly different than on the set, that's because I make his eye larger and I draw a soft line underneath his eyes. I think the little doodle make him look more like my platypus that I used to have. :)
