Challenge 28: Animal Antics

Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a great Summer, It's time for another challenge! This week's theme is 'Animal Antics'. Perhaps try using animal rubber stamps, animal photos or pictures. Interpret our theme in anyway you want! Our design team have made some great ideas for you. Happy crafting!!

This week's Prize, supplied by Tanda Stamps - are these 'Safari' rubber stamps. Everyone who takes part in this week's challenge by (10pm Monday the 8th of September GMT) will be entered into a prize draw and one lucky person's name will be picked at random winning these fab stamps! (Best of luck)

Jo, Fifi, Lesley, Becky, Kate & Wendy


My card is made using a Rubbadubbadoo image. I have used a tried and tested design, this time stamping the image onto Stampbord and colouring with inks. I have chosen backing paper that reminds me of the Elephant's hide. The word stamp is also from Rubbadubbadoo. Embellished with eyelets.


I stamped various stamps from my Stampendous Changito The Monkey stamps with Versafine inks and watercoloured them in with my Adirondack Ink Pads. I matted the main image onto a plain white card and stamped the small leaf stamp all round the edges and painted them in too.


How I made it... "I stamped my tortoises and coloured them with Pro Markers. I matted them onto K & Co papers and added some doodling, flowers with stitched buttons and some punched leaves. I finally added a sentiment from Cuddly Buddly.

I made my card using this gorgeous stamp by High hopes, I coloured it with watercolour pencils. I cut a circle shape and freehand scallop frame and edged with freehand stitching. I added a flower, a making memories rub on, button and some sequins and lots of freehand stitching. My card opens up by untying the ribbon.

I stamped Rudolph and coloured him with Prisma pencils and sansodor and added red glitter to his nose. Rudolph was then mounted with 3d foam onto the base card which had been covered with co-ordinating papers. The obligatory gems were added as a finishing touch
