Anything Goes

*** If you are here as part of the Stampotique Design Team Blog Hop please see my previous post below to participate in the hop***
This weeks challenge at Stampotique is hosted by Kim and she say's "Anything Goes" so feel free to do whatever brings a smile to your face and makes your heart sing. All the challenge details can be found here
The three things that make me smile most are, in no order, Poppy, Jack and my Stampotique rubbery lovelies. My Stampotique stamps really do feel like they are friends.
The obvious theme for me is animals, I think most of my makes include animals on them. Again I have made a postcard. The format of a 6in x 4in piece of card is just a brilliant starting place, sometimes I start things as a postcard and they get bigger and sometimes smaller.
The stamps I used are:
I began by painting the card blue then white washing so I could paint the blue clouds. Tulip was stamped and coloured with Prismacolour pencils, cut out and glue in place. The sentiment was stamped 3 times on white card and once straight on to the postcard. The other elements are stamped in black and embossing ink and embossed with white embossing powder to get a nice crisp image.
I hope you like it and I do hope I'm the kind of person Poppy thinks I am!
Wishing you a lovely day. Sam xxx
