CCM #242 Add A Critter

Today at Crafty Cardmakers we would love to see your creations with an added Critter……. as our hostess, Judy said, 2 legged, 4 legged, 6 legged, or even multi legged, we want to see them.

I used a couple of my brand new Art by Marlene stamps, the animals, and the bin is from Katzelkraft, to make my journal page. As soon as I saw the rabbit with the octopus/squid on it’s head that ‘should have gone to specsavers audio advert’ sprung to mind. He looks pretty miffer to have a squid on his head, and the other rabbit just looks a bit smug! I created the sentiment on my pc and edged it with black pen.

Anyhow I inky my background with Distress Oxides, and then stamped the bubbles from a That’s Crafty floral stamp set, which I either bleached out, bleached and coloured, or just stuck some diecuts from one of Marlene’s Diecut blocks over. The border is also a Katzelkraft stamp, and I coloured in the little circles in it to match one of the colours in the diecuts.

This is NOTHING like the true colour. To get the colour reasonably accurate in the rabbits I have ended up with the background looking more washed out than it is. I really need a new camera! Any recommendations anyone?
