Rainbow Toucan

Stampin Up Zoo Babies, CAS cards, one layer cards

 

Let'sCraft&Create has an animal theme. SweetStampin wants spots & stripes. OneLayerWednesday wants a silhouette. LessIsMore wants rubber stamping and if possible, some water colouring!

Stampin Up Zoo Babies, CAS cards, one layer cards

 

Love this toucan from the new Zoo Babies stamp set! If my memory serves me well, toucan's beaks are multi coloured? Well that was the inspiration behind my multi coloured background ...

I was playing with the inking then spritzing an acrylic block technique (kind of water colour technique!) I coloured various coloured stripes directly onto the block with marker pens, then sprayed a light misting of water before stamping it onto my card.

And yes, I seem unable to make a card these days without a scored border!

Happy Saturday everyone!

  17. Great idea to spritz after swiping markers - I might have a go at that myself. Fab card, that toucan is just too cute. Jenny
