The kangaroo baby fits inside the big one's pocket. Two ways to do this(and one of them is not masking, there are easier ways for this one, but if you really insist (shrug), go for it!): 1) Stamp and cut the kangaroo in half, adhering just above the pouch line. 2) Kick it up a notch by cutting out the baby, and stamping the large kangaroo a second time, cutting out the bottom portion of her body to mount on dimensionals over the baby roo for a 3 D/paper tole effect, as shown here. I had to give you the whole image in the set though, not just the top half, so it can hop out alongside it's mom whenever you think he/she is ready! ;)
EDITED TO ADD: one large kangaroo was colored with a Copic, one with an SU! marker. Can you tell which?**
Are you lovin' the little grass image as much as I am?? Now I want to go back to all all the cards in my basket and add grass! This is a really quick and easy way to "ground" your animals, no pun intended!! Stamp at random and color to make a little pasture, or just under each foot. You can also stamp them along an imaginary horizon with space in between and link them with a thin sketchy ink line.
And of course you have to wish the hoppy couple a "Hoppy anniversary"! also included! inside! :) Scallop & circle punches and 5/8" grosgrain is SU!, paper is Wild Asparagus and DCVW
Check back for more hip hop samples later and a new tip sheet! Thanks for stopping by!
*kite, grass, baby roo, "to the", "hoppiest", "couple"
** the red one uses SU! I didn't have this rust color in a Copic but I wanted to see if "coloring in circles" the way you do with copics worked with a regualr marker: I think it definitely cuts down on the stroke lines you see! Give it a try!
