Sat. Feb. 26, 2011 CSS Treasure Chest Hop

Our Center Stage Alumni hop this time around plays tribute to the Animal Kingdom.  Gina K offers so many wonderful stamp sets that have adorable animals to choose from.

If you arrived from JOY's blog, you are in the right place. If you would like to start at the beginning, CLICK HERE.

****Make sure to leave a comment on every blog along the way as you hop, because on Tuesday morning (March 1st), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95! ****
 The sheep image and the sentiment I used are from Gina K's Funny Farm Stamp TV kit, available HERE.  I did the minimal coloring with Copic markers.  The sponging was done with Distress inks.  I decided to puff up this little guy with Flower-soft to give him some added dimension!


I don't want to keep you any longer, because you need to head over to Linda Payne's blog to see her fabulous creation!  You won't be disappointed!
Thank you for stopping by.
