The Animal World at Crafty Individuals

I had great fun making these samples for the new animal challenge at Crafty Individuals and used the Alice Palace stamps.


The backgrounds were made by spraying distress inks over stencils and using them by printing them onto card and watercolour papers.




The images were stamped onto scrap pieces of inky leftovers, I love doing this it provides a great backing for these quirky images.




I added some collage bits and pieces to build the deigns and finish the compositions.



I you have some animal stamps why not join in the fun and do pop over during the month to see lots of inspirational pieces from the design team.

LOVING all your animal images but the Hare is my favourite, adorable features and a great colours.

It' great using mop up pages for stamping onto, another version of designing our own backgrounds but not quite mono.

Some lovely inspiration Brenda:-) xxx

Fabulous colourful inky effects, and the stamps look wonderful in your setting. Love these! I have the hares, but somehow never quite know what to do with them.
