Safari sogood!

This is my card for the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 62. They had a sketch to follow and the first of the DT's cards set me thinking about animals. I didn't have any whimsical animals, but I remembered that a little while back I had filed away some paper and thought at the time it would be perfect for a jungle card. (Yes I am that organised, I file things in alphabetical order, or in the case of craft the paper is in colours, then patterns, etc. etc. In fact I spend hours organising and less time crafting, or so my DD jokes with me).

I also had a nice set of jungle animals and plumped for the elephant for the centrepiece as he looked the best one to fit in a circle, apart from the Zebra, and there isn't any colouring in a zebra.

Obviously a bunch of flowe
rs would have looked silly alongside the elephant so I plumped for more jungle animals made with shrink plastic.

A little while back I was going to get rid of these stamps, but I can see a future for them. They
should make nice cards for men, instead of the usual beer, scantily clad ladies and motorbikes.

The elephants were coloured in with Derwent pastel chalk pencils, and the same for the shrink plastic animals. Certainly makes a change from my colour of choice, purple. After all whoever saw an elephant with a purple hairdo. In fact are there any animals that are naturally purple in colour?



  1. Hi there

    Don't know about purple animals but there is a purple challenge on at the moment and I instantly thought of you its here
    But you probably already knew this.
    I love the animlas on this card and I agree they would be ideal for a mans card.

  2. How I wish I could be so organised but it matters not how hard I try I always end up having to trawl through all my stash to find the elusive papers I know I should have and that I want to use.
    This elephant image is lovely as is the whole card.

  3. Stunning card, the papers are a wonderful choice to use with the elephant image and the border design has a really tribal feel to it.
