Mammoth Birthday Wishes

Hello, Jenny here welcoming the new week and today's card is the product of some colouring practice. I've been keeping a watchful eye over our little dog this week whilst he recovered from an operation, so I found it easier to stamp out some images and colour them wherever I needed to be...... I went through my stamps and found some sets I hadn't inked up yet!!!

This Woolly Mammoth and his friend are from Neat and Tangled's Prehistoric set.... I love how she's positioned so she can sit on his back!! I masked off the girl and stamped the mammoth so they were all one piece and then set about colouring them with markers.

I carefully trimmed around the image and used a couple of scenery images from MFT's  You're Rawr-some..... the boulder is the top to a small mushroom in MFT's You Gnome Me, it's the perfect shape!

I sometimes struggle to plan a layout on my cards so I turned to my patterned paper scraps for a background. I thought a cut on the diagonal would be a different way to add a focal area for the images as well as leaving a space for the sentiment.... another thing I'm not great at planning for either!!
I've used a sentiment from the Rawr-some set and just replaced the word BIG with die cut letters instead to accentuate the meaning.

That's one scrap of patterned paper used.... many, many more to go!!!


Thanks for stopping by :)
