Wild life...Challenge at The Greeting Farm Blog.

Here is my first attempt at trying a challenge to become a guest designer. The rules are here...http://splendidstamping.blogspot.com/2009/11/and-crowd-goes-wild.html. I am so excited. As you all know I just love these stamps from The Greeting Farm.
I first fell in love with the Anya and Ian stamps but much to my delight they found artist Marina Neira. This is her work here...http://thegreetingfarm.com/shop/index.php/by-artist/marina-neira.html so of course once these were being sold I could not wait to get some. They are the cutest little creatures ever.
When I was little I always thought animals had little homes, families, and of course could talk and these stamps remind of that piece of my childhood. Maybe a part of me still believes that because when I work with them I can feel their little personalities coming through. Like Laurie skunk here...she is so sweet you know she's up to something a surprise Birthday party maybe...lol.
So to make this card. I coloured Laurie skunk with copics using greys and a bit of black for shading. I then used a dauber to ink the background and then added red micro beads to the edges. For the patchwork in the background I used patterned paper which I adhered in a random fashion. I used an edge punch for the card and some of the patterned paper and inked the edges with red. After putting all the patchwork on I then adhered my title which I think suits her and pop dotted Laurie skunk. The embellishments on the corner were then added to just give it that extra something.
I hope you all like it and thanks for looking oh do have a bowl of wild mushroom soup and chamomile tea on your way out...bye...
