Tips:

  • The main stamp set for this one is The Gang’s All Meer – a FREE set during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order. I also used My Meadow and Snow Front for added scenery.
  • Stamp the meerkats, trees and cactus images with Memento Tuxedo Black. Mask the meerkats and the cacti.
  • Sponge the sunset in the top quarter of the art panel with Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Blueberry Bushel inks. Add some dark clouds by lightly sponging with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Draw some birds with a Basic Black marker.
  • Sponge the remainder of the panel using Gray Granite ink.
  • Stamp the grass randomly using Pear Pizzazz ink.
  • Stamp the ‘sand’ randomly using Crumb Cake ink.
  • Remove the masks on the cacti and colour with a Pear Pizzazz marker. Add some dots with an Old Olive marker. Colour the flowers on the cacti with a Blushing Bride marker.
  • Remove the masks on the meerkats and colour with the light and dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.
