All Creatures Great and Small

Today on The House That Stamps Built, Cheri Weston picked "All Creatures Great and Small" as our theme for the current challenge.  She'd like to see you include some critters (big or small) on your cards and paper-crafting projects this week.
I chose to showcase the 703-P, Woodland Friends stamp by embossing it on a watercolor panel I created with sparkly, pearlescent paints.
Since my banner was a bit too small to stamp the entire sentiment on, I used 1/2 of it on the front and included the second half inside

Love this stamp- I think this will go on my order list for sure. And I like how you just did some watercoloring vs. coloring each animal. Great Job.

Such a striking card with the embossing on your pretty watercolor background, like the die cut background too!

Cheri said...

Oh, Esther! What an adorable card! I love the way you broke up the sentiment, it worked perfectly. The die cut bg adds so much texture and interest to the image and die. Beautiful card.

Heather said...

How pretty! I love your fabulous colored image panel and the die cut behind is beautiful!

Adorable! Worn lipstick looks good here, that is one color I don't use all that often. thanks for the inspiration to get it out and play!

I like how you have separated your sentiment - this would make me want to open to see what was inside and you have put a great die cut that goes so well with the image!

Patti J said...

Total cuteness, Esther! Great take on the challenge!
