I decided to showcase the Oh, Jam It and the Quirky Animals Two sets for Release Day inspiration. I adore inanimate objects with faces on them! So of course, I had to add the new Fun Faces to my pieces of toast and toaster! I really wanted to feature the image itself so I made the card very clean and simple:

YNS May 2014 Release Oh Jam It YNS May 2014 Release Quirky Animals Two Crocodile

For my second project, I chose the crocodile and was inspired by the Disney game “Where’s my Water?” I admit, I also play this game as well because the mazes are so much fun! I’ll always be a big kid at heart. 😉 Those “bubbles” were created by using my own homemade stencil and sponging the ink in. I felt like the card was still flat, so I added some YNS gumdrops to create more bubbles. I also used Sketch #77 over at CAS(E) this Sketch as seen below for the layout of my croc card:

Let me know what your thoughts are on my cards! I’m always looking for feedback for improvements.
