Crafty Individuals - Mini challenge

Hello everyone.

Hope you are having a good day.
I am on a "roll" with my stamping at the moment and have been using my Crafty Individuals  designed by Alice Palace. They are a series of animal stamps and I have submitted my projects into the Crafty Individuals July challenge - Mini masterpiece.

For my first project I used  Dog and banner, as a gift for a friend who likes Bulldogs.


The face of the bull-dog has been stamped onto a 4.5cm. wooden heart from ArtCuts and coloured with watercolour pencils.
The background is coloured with a VersaMagic inkpad.
I have stuck a small peg on the back and then a strong piece of magnetic tape, so that the notepad can be stuck onto the fridge. Useful and cute!
This is the card to go with it.
My second project is a  duck brooch.

Again, this has been stamped onto a wooden shape and coloured with water colour pencils and the feet are tiny hearts. I went around the body area with a white Wink of Stella pen to give it a slight shimmer and then put Glossy Accents over the duck.
The background has been coloured with a VersaMagic inkpad, through a strip of tiny sequin waste.

I think the duck is very cute, such a comical creature.
I really like these stamps as they are suitable for male and female cards according to how they are coloured.
Must get the others out again. One has two rabbits on it  and the other has two skinny runner ducks.

                                     Hope you have enjoyed my projects and please visit again.
                                                                        Bye for now.
