Circusy Seal

A quick card today made with the seal from my the Recollections set Fun Fish.

I stamped Sammy, that's what I'm calling him today, on Stampin' Up (SU) Going Grey card stock and then colored him with Copics. I had no intentions of making a card when I stamped him but couldn't help myself.

The pedestal and balls were all made using SU punches. The large oval and the wide oval punches made the pedestal, I trimmed off the edges of the wide oval for the base then shaded the sides with Copics. The balls are punched out using the 3/4" circle punch and are also shaded with Copics.

The cast shadow was an afterthought which explains why the shadows on Sammy don't match the light source that cast that shadow. If I make another card like this, and the possibility is high because I think it's cute, I will be more mindful of where the light is coming from.

Happy Crafting,
