Animal Blessings + our blog hop winner!

Animal Blessings by Libby Hickson for Hero Arts

For today’s card I created with one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday release – CL884 Animal Blessings. I love these sweet little animals! There are a few more in the set, too – I didn’t even use them all!

To create the background, I watercolored with a few shades of blue Distress Ink. It’s hard to see in the photos, but there is shimmer all over this card, I spritzed it with some glitter spray from my stash. And the “ground” the animals are standing on is just shades of brown and gray Copics dotted randomly, with a bit of green grass drawn in, too.
