Hooray! to a Koality Friend with Keeway

Hi friends! It's Keeway and today I'm here to share a birthday card packed full of cute critters! I absolutely adore the koala from the recently Koalifications stamp set and of course I needed to send him over some friends too. So, I picked up a few other buddies from the Wild Ones stamp set so that we can parrrr-taay!

I stamped all of my images in a dark brown hybrid ink, and then colored them with copic markers. I used my handy white gel pen to add some details on the images. Then, I die cut all of them with their coordinating Nice and Neat dies.

With so many critters on the card, I kept the background pretty simple by blending some Broken China distress oxide ink from the edges in, leaving the majority of the center white. Then, with the Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink, I stamped the large 'hooray' from the Hooray mini stamp set in the top right, which easily fills up all the remaining open space. I used my handy white gel pen again to add little detailing to match what I did for the critters.

Now that everything is all colored up, it's time to adhere everything together. I used some thin foam squares and my regular foam tape to vary the depth of the images. For example, the koala sits behind the turtle, so I used the thin squares on the koala, and my regular foam tape which is just a tad thicker on the turtle. Isn't it sweet that the koala in the scene finishes the sentiment? Love that guy!

Thanks for joining me today, and hope to see you next time!
