Simon Says............Animal Antics!


It's Wednesday and that means another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

 Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

We have a fun theme for you this week: Animal Antics!  Put an animal/bird/critter on your creation!  I've gone to the birds myself this week..........

SSS April 16

Stampendous makes about 3 of these little chicks wearing hats - this one is called Floral Bonnet Baby, and I'm sorry to say that all of them went out of stock at the Simon store since I got her.  I colored her with some Spectrum Noir markers and paired her up with some Doodlebug Designs Hello Spring design papers.  My sentiment is computer generated around my stamped "Easter" (from a discontinued The Craft's Meow Easter set).   And I've been humming this song ever since this card was conceived!

Here's another one featuring their BlueBird Branch cling stamp:

SSS April 16 #2

This image just makes me smile, and brought to mind the term "bluebird of happiness", so my sentiment seemed right with it.  I colored these sweeties again with my Spectrum Noir markers, then cut them out into a Nestabilities Labels Twenty die, and sponged on some tumbled glass distress ink while it was still in the die.  I thought the blossoms from Simon's Thinking of You set were a good match to the ones in the main image, and I added leaves from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Leaves die set.

Now it's your turn!  What will you make this week?  As always, there's a $50.00 gift voucher to the amazing Simon Says Stamp Superstore up for grabs to a random player!
