Wild About You

Happy Tuesday!
It's laundry day in the Easton house. Which means I get to spend most of my day at my stamping area in the basedump ;)
This is a card created with todays colours on SCS.
Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Soft Sky
Not sure why but I immediately thought of animals and decided I should just go with it then.
The lion is masked and I also did a little paper tole on his head and mane. Cute eh?
Stamps: Wild About You; Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, WW and Soft Sky Prints Paper; Inks: Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky and More Mustard; Accessories: Paper Snips, Dimensionals, Pumpkin Striped Ribbon, 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches
I really enjoyed yesterday technique of embossing and then watercolouring so I thought I'd combine it with Julee's Mojo37 sketch. I've only used these chicks from Hey Chicky at All That Scraps a couple of times but think they are adorable! Great for watercolouring.
Stamps: Hey Chicky; Cardstock: Soft Sky, WW, WC paper and Imaginisce DP; Inks: Versamark and Versafine Black, Banana, Celery, Regal Rose, Bashful Blue; Accessories: Black EP, Aqua Painter, May Arts Ribbon, Ticket Punch, White Brads and Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

If you're spending your day in your stamping area, I have a feeling there's more awesome Dawn Easton designs to come ... woohoo!

These two cards are super duper cute, Dawn! I love the way you grouped the animal images in the first card --- great job with the color challenge!
