Have a wild time...


Here we are at day three of the Greeting Farm June release and this stamp set is taking us on an exciting safari today. It's called Wild Time and the exotic animals included are a giraffe, zebra, hippo, elephant and toucan along with a few sentiments and tall grass accent stamps. As soon as I laid eyes on this set I knew that I wanted to dig out the classic Wild Sprout Bree because even though she is technically a little mail carrier, I always thought she looked like she could be going on a sight seeing safari of her own, especially once I enlarged and printed out the binoculars from the S'more Fun digital add on set. Once I had Bree ready to go I created a watering hole with the giraffe and zebra on the shore and I sank the hippo into the water by simply not inking up the bottom half of his body and then coloring the blue water in around him. Selective inking is such a fun and easy technique for really playing and getting new looks out of your stamps. :)
Now you'll want to trek on over to the TGF blog to see the fab cards my fellow Farmers have made with this Wild Time stamp set.  :)
