{Gerda Steiner Designs Video} Party Animals

I'm thrilled to be returning as a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs! Today's card and video features the newly-released Party Animals stamp set. Coordinating dies are still en-route to me so I made this one-layered birthday card with lots of masking. See how it came together here:

By using a grey pigment ink to stamp the images, the images have a storybook look, especially with the watercolouring. It may take a while to create all the masks but every scene you create looks amazing and is perfect for mailing!

In order to keep all the colours of this busy scene organized, I only used three colours for all the animals and the trees. I simply used three different shades of each colour to create variation. I used a brighter accent colour to highlight the ostrich's head, cake and gift. To finish, I added blue for the sky around the animals.

The adorable koala is from You're Koalafied and was featured in another video HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
