I had my newly purchased (from HM Ben Franklin Crafts) Hero Arts stamp sets laying out on my desk when a funny card popped into my ridiculous brain. It was simple work to attach (with foam dots )the stamped, colored, fussy cut images. I used Momento pens for the cactus and porcupine but applied ink pads to color the flower pot. The background was made by pressing damp watercolor paper to a slick surface that was dabbed with Ranger Distress orange and blue ink. With an appropriate sentiment inside, this card might make a great Valentine's Day card.
Because of the simple lines, the animal set is easy to color and cut out....great for kid card crafting. The cactus set is very versatile because it comes with several cacti and flowers along with cute words and planter pots. I was able to cover up a coloring boo-boo on the porcupine with brown Fun Flock (Stampendous) that adds some nice texture....shh-h-h it'll be our secret fix-it tip!
