Welcome to the ESAD, Annual Catalogue Launch, Blog Hop.
I’ve got something a little bit different for you today using the Animal Outing stamp set.
It’s a beautiful blue rhinoceros!! I know rhino’s are usually grey, but no one said I had to stick with the norm.
If you haven’t seen this set before you can find it in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue from Stampin’ Up! ….I’ve also popped a pic below ;-).
SAVE DOLLARS: This stamp set has coordinating framelits dies, so no fussy cutting is necessary. Plus if you buy the stamp set, & the dies together, using the special bundle deal item number 148324, you can save 10% off the individual RRP of each item! That’s what I call a WIN in my books.
To create my lovely blue rhino, I stamped the image using Staz On Jet Black Ink onto a square of Shimmery White card stock. Shimmery White card stock is great for all types of colouring, including techniques that involve the use of water.
I chose Coastal Cabana as my main ink colour, then used Blueberry Bushel & Blackberry Bliss for the shadows. The last step was adding in a little bit of Lovely Lipstick (that’s the pink) for some fun.
The dreamy background is the result of a technique known as Ink Smooshing. If you haven’t tried it before, you should try it now. It’s lots of fun, especially if you don’t mind a little bit of a mess.
Once everything was nice & dry I used the largest square framelit from the Stitched Shapes framelits to cut out my pretty rhino, before popping it up on some dimensionals on my card front!
Voila! Job Done!!
I hope I’ve inspired & encouraged you to try something different, the next time you’re colouring in.

PS: I’ve got animals on the brain at the moment…we welcomed a new addition to our family yesterday in the form of a very cute Golden Retriever pup, named Maggie. We’ve been desperately wanting a puppy of our own to love & cherish forever. So I’m hoping you’ll understand if my blog posts aren’t quite as frequent, or as detailed as usual, while we help her settle into her new forever home.
