Time for a fun hop for the latest release from SCACD! PLUS some extra fun news which you will find at the end of my post. 😉
Today Susana Loves Stamps releases yet another round of these FUN little pranksters the Oddly Sweet Curiosities #5! With their universal appeal the Curiosities were just begging for another turn in the spotlight with a new release. These little guys are the perfect way to provoke a smile or a laugh. We’re addicted, and from the popularity of the previous sets we know you will be too!
Susana Loves Stamps is also showcasing a fresh new line: The MechAnimals. This edgy but endearing range of SteamPunk animals will lend themselves to all sorts of projects, occasions and styles and earn a place in your crafty hearts.
Grab a cup of something yummy and enjoy the show!
Both collections are available in rubber, direct from Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design or for International customers from Quixotic Paperie in the UK!
My card today features one of the AWESOME Mechanimals stamps. I am seriously in love with this collection. I spend so much time colouring “people” stamps and cute images that these were like a much needed breath of fresh air. You could say they gave me a bit of a creative jumpstart.
Meet INK SPLATS. How cool?! He comes with the fun sentiment shown on my card. This is my favourite card that I’ve created so far this year and I had a blast doing it!
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (available in the UK from Jackson’s Art Supplies). I also used one lonely Copic marker on this card! BG57 for the underwater background.
The designer paper is actually from the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe 8×8 pad, I sprayed it with Dylusions Ink Spray in Crushed Grape to recolour it for my card. I also used a Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabber in Gold around all the edges. I created the cool splats by drawing them with a Montana Acrylic Paint Marker in Shock Lilac (available in the UK from Jackson’s Art Supplies).
I stamped the sentiment on the same cardstock as my image, and die cut it using one of the MFT Die-Namics Fishtail Flags STAX dies. I then coloured it using one of my Touch Twin Markers, and added some extra detail using the Montana paint marker and my acrylic paint dabber.
Some serious inky painty fun! 🙂
