I get the privilege of showing you Zoo Crew on my card. 


Everything you see here is stamped. The tree is created with one fern image from the set. I stamped it repeatedly in 2 shades of green and a blue for a little extra pop. Normally I would just leave the card as is, I colored a little dirt with Copics to ground the images so they don't look like they're floating in white space. The little birdie is from My Peeps. He just so happened to be looking up, perfect for this card!

  95. Oh my, beautifully stamped! I love the tree, the little bird, giraffe and how you coloured the dirt!
    Is the text handwritten or is that a stamp as well? (I know I can't write on cards, how hard I try, I just mess up).
    Great result with such little different resources, it's very KISS! (Keep it Simple S...)(One of the hardest things to do when designing is keeping it simple).
