March 23-- DIY Kids Coloring Book by Sandy
March 25-- Long Easel Card by Gail
You know you have too many stamps when you have had this idea rolling around your head for about four years.  The Be Wild set was released about that long ago, but really is timeless.  I love silhouette images and this set has many.  I used 6 stamps from the set on this tiny little card.  The globe is created with several "wild animal" images.  Moving clockwise from Africa, you will see the top of the lion, the bottom of the rhinoceros, the top of the giraffe and an encore appearance of the rhino.  Not only is the a card, but it's also a rebus puzzle.  Can you figure it out?  (I will send a brand new MFP stamp set to one person who posts the correct answer.  I'll randomly select the winner from all correct answers.)

The card isn't too terribly difficult to make.  It does involve quite a bit of embossing resist.  All the animals were stamped in pear tart and then embossed over.  After that I sponged over the embossed images with the tempting turquoise.  For my elephant, I stamped the peace sentiment first and embossed over it.  Then I stamped my elephant in basic gray over the sentiment.  I embossed my elephant and sponged tempting turquoise over the whole circle.

If you haven't already started the hop, let's do it!  Here's the Design Team:  BonnieGail, KarenKrenLois MariLynnPatPamSandy ShirleyToniVickieMFP Stamp Shop.  

I hope you enjoy today's hop. Come back each day for more inspiration.  Be sure to get to work on the tutorials, show us what you made by April 8th and then check back on April 9, 2016 to see if you are a winner. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
