CASology #46 (Furry), Annabelle Stamps #ac164, Simon Says Stamp 29-5

I’m starting today with a couple of big thank you’s.  Firstly, to Meghan (DT CASology), for choosing Cinderella’s-life-changing-glass-slipper for an Honourable Mention last week …  I was so chuffed and it brightened my whole day!  Second, a big thank you to Andrea at Annabelle Stamps … I won a Lil Belle stamp set in last month’s blog hop and just received it this week … not only the stamp set, but metres and metres of gorgeous gingham ribbon too … all beautifully packaged and deliciously wrapped in tissue paper … it’s like having a birthday when it isn’t!  If you haven’t come across Annabelle Stamps yet (yeh, right!), check them out to find fantastic quality, brilliant images and an amazingly talented and inspiring DT.

Now, onto my card … it’s a triple challenge one (Shirley, be proud!).  At CASology the cue card is ‘Furry’.  I can play along at Annabelle Stamps with my new goodies … there’s a ‘Favorite Sketch’ week and I chose an inverted ac155.  Finally, I’m entering a second time at Simon Says Stamp, where ‘Anthing Goes’.  Here’s my offering …

This hairy furry little monster is from my gift set … stamped, coloured with Promarkers, trimmed out and popped up on dimensionals over his own ‘shadow’.  His balloon is liberally covered with Glossy Accents to make it shine and he’s sporting a simple ‘smile’ t-shirt (the sentiment is part of the set).  My expression was similar to this when I opened my goodies!  Finally, the top corner was rounded to match the round balloon.

May be back later on with a little something … in the meantime, though, thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are a joy!  Anita 🙂

    He totally is the cutest and your colouring and CAS design are perfect. I’ve never tried Promarkers before (maybe I’ll get to try them this weekend I’m off to a papercraft convention and I can’t wait… hope my wallet is ready lol)
    Thanks so much for sharing at AnnaBelle Stamps!

    He is almost too cute for words! Your shadow effect is awesome! I was just telling Ardyth earlier today that a simple stroke or two of a marker (and an outline like you have also done) to create a shadow, not only grounds the image but turns it into a scene rather than just a stamped image!

    Lovin’ his tooth….wonder if he can eat corn-on-the-cob?
