Fur Babies

A little over 20 years ago or so I bought this plaster baby animal statue to paint. I painted it and displayed it here and there over the years. A few years ago I came across the matching rubber stamp and bought it. 
  I finally inked up the stamp and colored it with Copic Markers. I stamped the background using my Misti.  A rectangle die was used to cut my frame from the map, an extra piece of white card stock and the card front. While fussy cutting the animals I left a tab on top of the polar bear's head and sandwiched it between the card front and extra white piece making it more stable.  

 I only have a couple of statues left that I painted so long ago.  I stopped painting ceramics and such when I started card making.

  5. You found a matching stamp?! Talk about lucky!! Absolutely wonderful work on both the statue and the card, Irene! Truly talented - a little sad that you've stopped the ceramic painting, but since you are card making, no complaints! :)

  6. Oh, my gosh, that's so cute! Your painting of the statue is pretty amazing, too. I love how you used the map background, seeing as how the critters are from all over the world. Good idea you had for supporting the cut out within the frame. Making a note of that. Looks like you love animals as I do. A woman after my own heart!

  7. wow I can't believe you found a stamp to match!!!that is sooo cool!! very well done!
