Bomdiggity........it's time for.....


Hilde has asked us this time to use an animal in our card. 

I have several of the Tim Holtz Crazy Animal sets so I decided that I would use one of those.
Which one?

That decision took way too long....



Then in my mind's eye I had planned out a background, with some masking to happen and some subtle colouring and a funny saying to top it all off.
(Suzy's Stamps)



Why do these things never look like what I could see in my head?
The background is  a street scene from SU's Mediterranean Moments
and it is lightly coloured with pencils

Never mind, here it is:


He is decoupaged as well (just one layer)


These is subtle sparkle on his nose, tongue and ears but you cannot see it because I had to shoot this photo inside - it's too dark and cold out there by now....

(I will try for a better one in daylight!!)


So bomdiggityshizznit - that's all folks!

Your turn to showcase the animals for this fortnight at 


Psssttt - took another today in the rain and daylight


Better idea of the colours 


Here you can see the sparkle - subtle but there

Fab card. Love the use of the background stamp and the touch of sparkle. Glad you got round to getting the extra pics - worth the effort shows your work much better.
