Crafty Wild Creations

Wednesday already, so it's time to introduce a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges. This week's theme: BORN TO BE WILD! Use a wild animal image or wild print as part of your creation. Our generous sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy. At first, I was planning on using a giraffe stamp, but then remembered a Unity stamp that hadn't seen ink yet:

Watercolouring AND paper-piecing? Wow, practically mixed-media. :P I am rather pleased with my elephant's colouring, and love the understated font of the sentiment. I even managed a perfect dot of Enamel Accents for his eye, and the pom-pom and his tail simply called out for some Stickles.  
What wild items do you have tucked away in your craft supplies? 

Supplies: white & teal cardstock, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite patterned papers, Unity It's a Party stamps, Versamark, Versafine onyx black, Memento grey flannel & tangelo inks, clear embossing powder, watercolour pencils, Lil' Inkers stitched sentiment flag die, black Enamel accents, frosted lace Stickles, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!
