I bought this stamp a few months ago and having been looking forward to inking it up but never got around to it. The twist in this month's Use Your Stamps Challenge was to use an animal stamp so it was the perfect motivation for me to use my new stamp. I hope that this cutie puts a smile on your face as he did mine when I first saw him :)
The stamp is from Wild Rose Studios and I used grey ink to create a softer outline. I used Prismacolor pencils to color him and tried my best to find colors that matched the dots in the background paper (which is from Doodlebug). I die cut the happy with the matching outline/shadow die. The small banner is from a MFT set called hip clips.
