It's all about the animals

Saturday thank heavens! And also time for a new challenge at Kraftin Kimmies  and this week our hostess with the mostess is Angie and she wants us to use an animal or insect on our card, no people this time! And Kimmie is being extra generous and is giving away the entire Lots of Love 2 set to one lucky participant. Well, luckily for me I had this Stanley the Snail image I had never inked up and with summer starting to wrap up I thought this was a good time to get him inky.

I just got these papers from SCACD and they are Echo Park Paradise Beach and 25% off currently. I have used Spellbinders dies to cut out the background with an Spellbinders oval for the main image and some diamond stickles around the edges which is my go to color. The clear with the iridescence makes everything look pretty and of course with every color. He is colored with a combination of copics and Shinhan touch twin markers and an orange flower from my stash in the corner for a little more pop of color. Ok, make sure to play along cause whatever for you chance to win just please make sure you use a  Kraftin Kimmie image to be eligible.

Hi there. Amanda, this is just adorable! I LOVE him and his all summery scene. I really like this paper that you have used. I have to wait for payday, but I so going to see if Susanna still has some available then. :O) Really this is adorable. I know what you mean about the SMASH books. There was no way I was going to get me one,(so didn't need it) also I can make any book I wont with my Cinch. Right! I need to buy some wire and well when I saw the little mini at such a great price I figured less work for me. lol... I am having a great time making it into an overall Copic related book. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I just finished my nails and now I am planning on getting crafty...lol Hugs, Lisa
