Baby Animals


It is time for another challenge at The Paper Funday.
Our challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional Twist.
The twist this time is "Cute Critters"

We are very fortunate to have 2 sponsors for each challenge this year which means we get to choose which artist we would like to work with. This really is great as it gives us double the choice. We have some amazing sponsors lined up this year, many of which are old favourites and some that are new to me.

This Months we are Sponsored by Polkadoodles and Eureka Stamps both of whom have a fabulous assortment of digital images and physical products.

I chose to work with this lovely image Baby Animals from Eureka Stamps. I noticed that in my card making I tended to favour baby cards for girls and not boys so thought this would be a perfect image to remedy that.

The 6" card base has been covered with recycled kraft card and I used this throughout for matting and layering. The background paper I have had for years and I have no idea what brand it is.

The image had been coloured with Promarkers and I used some coloured pencils for shading in the background. I added created a second layer to decoupage the elephant and this is popped up on foam pads. White gel pen was used to highlight the eyes and tusks.

The ribbon came from The Range many years ago and the sentiment is a digital freebie from Desert Diva. If you are in need of some fabulous sentiments Hannelie's are always good quality and she is very generous. This was from 2014 and is still on her blog to download along with hundreds of others.

I hope you will join myself and our fabulous Team over at the Paper Funday Challenge.
