Congratulations - Baby card

I'm back with another card for the Altenew Educator Program. It's been a long break as my dad recently passed and it was hard to create, but it's all good now.

I used the Baby Zoo stamp set and the coordinating dies to create this scene baby card.

Baby Zoo Stamp Set - Altenew

I started with a piece of white cardstock and did some inking for the background.  I used Distress Oxide inks.  For the ground, I used Distress Oxides Gathered Twigs and Aged Mahogany. I cut a mask for the sun and inked Distress Oxides Carved Pumpkin nearer to the sun and blend it out with Wild Honey.  Just above the ground, I applied Tattered Rose and Seedless Preserves lightly. Lastly I blended everything with Squeezed Lemonade.  Then I removed the mask and with a Jumbo Dauber I sponged Warm Sunshine ink for the sun. The background is die-cut using a stitched rectangle die.  To add a little interest, I sprayed some sparkle shimmer spray on the background.

The animals are stamp with various Altenew inks - Elephant with Evening Gray, Lion with Peach Perfect and the Giraffe with Caramel Toffee.  The animals are adhered to the background with the elephant slightly raised with foam adhesive.

The sentiment Congratulations is stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  The smaller sentiment is stamped with black ink.

This was a fun card to put together.  I hope you like it.
