Cute Critters

Hi friends - Welcome to another post for A Colorful Life Designs' Feb. 2023 release. I may a ton of cards for this release and these 2 are in my favorites!
For both cards I used:
1) I Adore You Digital Stamp from Whimsy Stamps;
2) Printed on a laser printer onto Ranger Ink Tim Holtz's Distress Watercolor Card Stock.
3) Watercolored with Daniel Smith's 238 Dot Watercolor Cards (perfect for lunchtime coloring at work!).
Then the 2 panels are handled differently. For this card I used the Acoustic Waves Stencil with Pixie Spray on the back and ink blended with a pale grey ink. I just wanted a subtle background. The cool edging around the card is from Penny Black's Semi-Circle Stackers. The sentiment comes from a retired My Monthly Hero Set - MH0621C (had it for years and it's the first I've used it!).
The card below uses the Polka Dot Stencil with a blend of red Distress Inks. The sentiment comes from Spellbinders' It's Party Time Stamp Set white heat embossed on Lawn Fawns' Black Licorice Card Stock. For white on black I most often use a White Pigment Ink from instead of Versamark Ink. I find I get more solid coverage.
Here is a picture of both cards side by side. Which is your favorite?  For a 10% discount on your entire order (excluding bundles) at A Colorful Life Designs, please use my code: AnitaFan10.
