A Day At The Zoo...

Well good day and happy Thursday to all you crafty peeps.

Once again it’s a new Twisted Thursday challenge over at the Outlawz. I must say that our last fishing twist brought out a lot of great cards. Who would have thought that fish could do that? 

This week it’s a big event for me, because being a design team member you have certain responsibilities one of which is to post challenges to the website. So this week will be my first time to do just that, so I hope all goes well with our twist this week which happens to be….a day at the zoo!

I have this really cute collection of zoo animal stamps that I bought a wee while ago from Close to my Heart. So here I am just colouring one after the other with the intention of putting them on one card, but it came to the point that I would have needed a really really big card. So I made two of them into separate cards with a third in the works. My next problem was deciding which one to use. Obviously I couldn’t so that’s why I have two cards to show you this week.

I coloured them with my Copic markers, primarily using W 00 through to W 07, and then added E04 for a pinkish hue around the elephant’s ears and the hippo’s mouth, ears and eyes. I also used my colourless blender marker to add a mottled textured to their skin.

I think these cards are fantastic for children because they can easily relate to them. The sentiments come with the stamp collection as well and are hilarious.

So there you have it, another fun challenge to participate in over at the Outlawz. If you haven't joined yet you really should because there is a ton of inspiration to be found, great challenges, awesome prizes from fantastic sponsors. We also have some really really great people, both members and design team members. There is many friendships waiting there to be formed, it's as easy as clicking here.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me those wonderful and very encouraging comments :)S
