Guest Design: Wheek, whek, wheek... by Anika Lerche

April 16, 2018

Hey stampers, Anni here again with another card using the super cute set Wheek, Wheek, Wheek...Guinea Pig



I started by creating masks for nearly all the guinea pigs in the set. Then I stamped the guinea pig in a row. I just wanted to use the uper part of the critters so I didn't mind how the rest looked. For inking the stamps I used alcohol marker friendly ink because I wanted to colour with Copic markers.

To create a variety of fur I searched at Google for picture of guinea pigs to see in which colours they come. Just like on the last card I added some strokes of coloured pencils and white gel pen to achieve a more realistic look.


To cover up the bottom part of the guinea pigs I created a panel with a scalloped border - a little bit looking like a fence. I tied a little bit of twine around it.

I finished up the card by stamping the punny sentiment and assembling the card.

Thanks for stopping by. Again it was so much fun to be a guest designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.

Hello! It's Karla back today with a pretty Christmas card featuring the super cute Santa Owl digi stamp from the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop.
