What I made
I had so much fun with these stamps that i just had to combine them with our other Operation Smile stamp set : Animal Greetings. These cards were a labour of love with masking, watercolour & colouring in with the ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers.
Whale Hello there: Share the Love featuring Animal Greetings. La Vie En Rose paper scraps with sliver sequins. Colouring done with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™markers, background inside the Doodle circle created with watercolour sets.
Whale Hello There: I stamped the whale in Black Memento™ Ink & coloured it in with the ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers. I stamped the speech bubble & done some fancy masking so that I could use part of the Whale Hello there stamp from the Animal greetings. And then some more fancy masking & stamped the circle from Doodled Designs. And then some tricky watercolours. I used La Vie En Rose paper scraps with sliver sequins with the cute little arrowed heart to finish off the card.

You make me Smile, say Cheese: I stamped the mouse in Black Memento™ Ink & coloured it in with the ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers. I stamped the speech bubble and within the circle from Doodled Designs, I added a saying from the Animal greetings stamp set. And then some more fancy masking & stamped  I used La Vie En Rose paper scraps to finish off the card.

You are so pawsome, you make me Smile: I stamped the dog in Black Memento™ Ink & coloured it in with the ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers. I stamped the speech bubble & done some fancy masking so that I could use part of the Dog – you are pawsome stamp, as you can see I masked to move the smile down a bit to make room. And then some more fancy masking & stamped the circle from Doodled Designs. And then some tricky watercolours. I used La Vie En Rose paper scraps with sliver sequins with the cute little arrowed heart to finish off the card.

Hey Love Ewe: Was made in the same way as the other cards – lots of masking, colouring in different mediums – lots of mess & creative fun!
