I wanted to find a way to use my 'I think you're COOL' stamp, and didn't want to use the small penguin or polar bear that came with it. I thought that they were just too small! So, I chose to use the Walrus (W) cut from my Zooballoo Cartridge.
The walrus is cut @ 3.5". I cut the shadow layer with light brown, the main walrus cut with dark brown. I had to cut the 'layer' feature twice, once in white for this little guy's tusks, and the other in brown core color core'dinations. The only real inking and coloring I did on the walrus, was dot his 'whiskers' with a thin brown sharpie.
The paper I used was just a plain piece of gray cardstock cut at 6X8.5" to make a 6 X 4.25" card. The light blue bottom piece is cut at 2.5"X4.25", and the upper water type print is from a Sizzix stack, cut at 5.5"X 4.25" (maybe a little shy of that to leave a little border).
I chose to also add a piece to the interior of this card, and ink the edges. I used a light blue piece, but at 5.5" X 3.75" and inked around the piece with brown pigment ink. The ribbon is a white/vanilla grograin.
I hope you enjoy! Happy Mother's Day! I will try and get some projects up tonight using my new purple cow freestyle mouse and cutter! :-) I also have played A LOT with the Princess Cartridge today.... some sneaks coming from that too.....
