Caveman Grog - more new Whimsy Stamps goodies! 💖

I'll admit, when I first saw this Caveman Grog stamp set  from Whimsy Stamps I was like ..... hmmm this is so not my style and I've no clue what to do with it.  Then I saw the new Zebra Stripes Background stamp and I was sold.  See, my all time favourite series of books that I have read and re-read umpteen times is the Earth's Children series by Jean M. Auel which is an EPIC series about pre-historic times.  Just pure golden magic!  So, getting back to the Zebra Stripe stamp I starting thinking tiger .... orange and yellow ink blending and yep, I was away.

I loved every second I spent making this card, it's the first time I've experimented with my copics in a looooong time, and was so happy with how the sky turned out.  After stamping and masking Grog, I lay down the colours in streaks in the following order, though sometimes going back over with random colours to get the blend I was after.  YR30, YR00, E95, R00, R30, RV000, B60, BV00.  I then wanted a stone floor but wasn't getting over adventurous haha, so grabbed the Giraffe Stencil and lightly inked through the stencil with pumice stone, just enough to give me a pattern to follow with my copics.  I used W3, 1, 0 and 00 for this.

Grog was coloured with the following Copics:

Skin: E04, 11, 000
Hair: BV29, 25, 23
Clothes: YR23, 31, 30 BV29, 25
His "desk" and laptop (snort) W5, 3, 1, 0, 00; C3, 1, 0
Club E29, 25, 50

I then stamped and heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment from the stamp set, and saw the "Maybe time for upgrade" sentiment and yep, that HAD to go on the card.  Priceless!  Honestly, every single one of the computer sentiments in that stamp set SO fits my hubby.  He knows how to turn it on and turn it off, anything else and he's snookered ðŸ˜‚

I'll be back tomorrow with a card using a new slimline die from Whimsy Stamps.  Until then, here's a peek at what some of the DT girls came up with for this mini release that's happening today
