Party Like an Animal

The current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge is this photo of some great sunglasses, and I really wanted to play along!

I started looking through my stamps, thinking “what can I use… what can I use….”  I noticed that there’s a pair of sunglasses in this I Love Donuts stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  Now, I’m not sure why those sunglasses are in that set… am I missing a pun there or something?  LOL  Instead, I started thinking about who or what I could put those sunglasses on!  And here’s what I came up with!

Party Like an Animal

Squeee!  Tell me the truth… is he not CUTE?  This sweet little giraffe is from the Party Animal stamp set (and matching die) from Wplus9 Design Studio.  I had actually colored him weeks ago, which made this card come together pretty quickly.  I stamped the sunglasses in Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed them with clear embossing powder and cut them out.  The background was watercolored with Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass distress inks, and I flicked on some additional ink with Peacock Feathers and Gathered Twigs.  I added a starry background using some white embossing paste and the Stargaze stencil from My Favorite Things.  The black and white strip at the bottom is from the Dots & Stripes Neutral paper pack from MFT, and I embellished with some Sparkling Clear Mix sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope you’re having a great week!  Thank you for visiting me today!
