More Zoofari fun

I am having so much fun with my new stamps and the new colors are awesome!

I didn't realize it until I finished yesterday that I had kind of a green theme going on.

The snake card is done with Certainly Celery, Wild Wasibi, Shimmery White and the pattern paper is from Palette of Prints. I stamped the snake in Black Staz On and colored it with Certainly Celery and Old Olive markers. The sentiment is stamped in Wild Wasibi. I really like these 2 greens together.

For the birds I used a sketch challenge from SCS (I think it was last weeks). For the pattern paper (from Palette of Prints again) I cut it to the same size as the Wild Wasibi (5 1/4" x 4") and then marked on the back from corner to corner, cut on the lines and then stuck to the Wasabi piece.

The "stitching" is done with All in a Row, I used my Old Olive marker to ink it up and then used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up perfectly to look like stitches. I learned this from Beate and I am so excited........I see it in my scrapbooking in the near future:)

The birds were stamped in Black Staz On on Shimmery white and colored with an aqua painter and the ink from the lid of the pads. I really hope Stampin' Up! comes out with markers for the new In Colors. If not I will be using blenders pen and re-inkers again (let me know if you don't know what I am talking about).

I am a little "under the weather" today so I don't think I will be getting any stamping in. I was really hopeing the new catalogue would come today so I could relax with my new book but no such luck :( Maybe tomorrow. I really hope Mom doesn't get hers before me.....she will rub it in soooo bad. Of course, I would do the same thing ;-)
