I have been so excited and thrilled, and can now share my news. I have long admired the challenge blog Alphabet Challenges, so when I saw there was a DT call, I crossed my fingers and applied. I am so delighted to have been offered a place on the Design Team. Many thanks to the team and hello to my fellow new team members this week. We are coming in for the last letter of the alphabet Z - for Zoo Animals. I am always so happy to get an opportunity to use one of the four large aninal stamps I have from La Blanche bought ages ago on QVC. This is of the leopard. I added some corrugated card to the main card, to give a rustic background. I watercoloured the card with TH Distress Inks Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters. I then stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, the large stamp of the leopard and leaves. I used watercolour pencils to colour the leaves. I then made two leaves (Sheena Douglass) to add to the end of the card, to place the Scrabble type letters. I re-stamped the animal again, coloured the light areas with Distress ink Old Paper. Tore and distressed the edges and adhered to the corrugated card with silicone. I do hope you like my Zoo animal, I am so looking forward to visiting your blogs to see your Zoo Animals. Please be sure to pop over to the blog for the DT have made some fabulous cards, to inspire you.
