Dream Valley #24 Animals

At Dream Valley this fortnight we want to see your creations involving animals. the prize will be a surprise parcel from Mel, the owner, which will have a nice selection of flowers, ribbons and a couple of stamps.

For my card I used ‘Katarina’ designed by Teri Sherman of Delicious Doodles and what a stunning image she is.

She would clearly make a fabulous Christmas card, but I have chosen colours so that it does not look like a Christmas image.

24 Main

I’ve coloured her with mainly flexies, and she is matted onto some Basic Grey cardstock, with a slice of some leopard print glitter card down the side. The leopards (or at they cheetahs I never know the difference) in the bottom corner were stamped onto shrink plastic and coloured with flexies too. The sentiment was made on my pc and printed onto Safmat, and the corner is a metal filigree corner which was silver and I colured with the Lime Green promarker to tone in with the rest of the card.

  5. Hi Lin, what an amazing piece of art, the image is fabulous and so unusual and so beautifully coloured , I just adore the shrink plastic Leopards/Cheetahs I don't know what they are either ! but I do know they look pretty darn good. The metal corner embellishment that you have coloured is a great touch and the glittery leopard print is a touch of genius.
