Repeated Stag Cards :D

I've been a little bit addicted to cutting out funky foam using my dies at the moment, so I had to give it a go with this beautiful stag die. I cut the die from a piece of funky foam, then stuck it to an acrylic block by adding some Crafters Companion tape pen to the acrylic block, and then pressing the die cut onto it, and it holds it really well. I only used one die cut for all these cards, as its really easy to change between ink colours, you can just use a baby wipe to clean off any excess ink and then dry the surface of the foam with some kitchen roll before applying your next colour :D To get the stags nicely spaced apart I did draw a few vertical lines on the paper lightly with a pencil before I began stamping, that way the antlers would nestle in nicely to the neighbouring stag image :D I used a variety of Hero Arts ink cubes for the stamping, from left to right in the image above, they were: Green Hills, Tide Pool, Pool, Butter Bar, Orange Soda, Neon Red, Ultra Pink, Passion Flower, and finally for the monochrome card on the right I used Wet Cement :D In the photo below, you can see that I added a little sparkle to the happy die cut and the word banner using the Spectrum Noir clear overlay Sparkle pen :D

I'm entering this card design into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Blog Challenge 'Animal Magic'
