Good morning and welcome to my blog! Today’s post features a new stampin’ queens sketch challenge featuring the zoo review stamp set and fancy fan embossing folder! (That is after resisting my first instinct to make a black/white and silver glimmer paper card using today’s design team sketch!)
It’s been so very hot here in North Florida, as it has been in much of the country! Today’s card colors were chosen to resemble those found at our local zoo… lots of sand, and water!
The fancy fan folder resembles a chain link fence don’t you think? LOL… when it’s inked lightly with a sahara sand ink pad you’ll get the picture!With all that chain link, there had to be something inside the fence so I reached for the Zoo Review stamp set!The Giraffe, Penguin, and Lion image were colored with markers and punched using various circle punches (and a scallop circle punch too).A white gel pen was used to dot around the scallops… and a triple strand of bakers twine was knotted across square lattice embossed sahara sand card stock.“Friend to Friend” seemed an appropriate sentiment for today’s challenge card share, LOL… the animals appear to be engaged in some sort of conversation!Here’s the sketch for today’s Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge and we’d love to have you play along too! You know the drill .
