Happy Friday. It's another INSPO day at FestiveFriday and I decided to go with the theme and it was the perfect excuse to ink up one of the stamps from My Favorite Things called Party Animals. I had such fun coloring this guy. However, I must admit, when I first looked at I was confused as to HOW I was going to color it!
Here's a sneak peek:
And here is our INSPO list and theme for this challenge:
I chose: cupcake, birthday sentiment, embossing paste
So, before I show you my card. I have to tell you about the inspiration. I am a complete and utter Nick Parks fan. He's the creator of Wallace and Grommit. I mean, who doesn't love a little Wallace and Grommit? Nick and his studio also made a couple of other films that I love .. Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, etc. BUT... he also made a film which is just a classic called Creature Comforts. You can see it here. Well, once you have seen this short, you will know why I created this poor lion in a cage:-) Creature Comforts is so well done and I love how the voices were chosen to match the creatures so well and the droll delivery of the voice over!
Anyway, so now you know the background - you have probably guessed that I have a lion, a cupcake and there is a brick wall involved! I thought the comical, whimsical take on the illustration of the lion, deserved some texture and more coloring than I would normally do!
Here's my card:
And, can we talk about that little red polka dot hat :-) I hope you will join us and play along with our challenge. You only have to choose 3 words from the INSPO list. As you can see from the cards from our design team, you don't even have to follow the theme. That's why I love the FestiveFriday challenge - so many different takes on the same set of inspiration! talking about inspiration - please check out the projects from our fabulous design team:
I'll be back tomorrow with my Addicted to CAS card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
