Animal Antics


I made this for a friend for her birthday and though it would be ideal to enter into the Lili of the Valley Animal Antics Challenge. I stamped my image with memento ink and coloured it with colour pencils (Fabel Castell polychromos - Burnt Carmine, Burnt Umber & Cold Grey IV) I blended the pencil with a blending stump and  baby oil! It worked really well considering this was my first attempt. I added some bakers twine, a sentiment (from Pink Petticoat) and a little glossy accents & glitter to finish it off.
