This is your day!!!

I'm entering this card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

The theme is "Stamp On It".

I've used stamps from AALL & Create.

I've made the background using Oxide Inks, paints and lots of stamps. 
I stamped the sentiment and main image onto white tissue paper and then used a matte medium to adhere it to the background. To make it into a card I layered the main section onto contrasting card and then onto a blank white card.

Decoart - Matte medium

AALL & Create meets Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

I'm really enjoying working with my new AALL & Create stamp sets they are such fun to work with. So I made a card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Their challenge this week is Stamp On It. 

So here's my card

I started off with a piece of white linen cardstock, just for more texture. For the background I gessoed an area with white gesso. I let that dry and then using modelling paste I stencilled through a splat stencil. I then radomly blended 3 shades of Oxide Inks over the gessoed area.  
I then blended the same inks over a large piece of coated board and stamped the images. I also added a little white pen for highlights.
The animals have been stamped onto white card and I've added a little grey and pink copic pen to each along with a white pen highlights. 
The drum kit, sentiment and image in the top corner were all stamped with black ink.
I then adhered the board to the card leaving a little gap to show the stamped image underneath. 
The little animals were adhered with 3D pads.
I then layered the whole thing onto a piece of black card and layered that onto a blank white card.

Stamps: AALL & Create #51 & #59
Inks: Oxide Inks: Bundled sage, Fossilized amber & Spiced Marmalade
