In the Wild Something Challenge

The challenge was for wild animals - these qualify don't they? I mean you wouldn't find them in every neck of the woods would you? Yeah I know they look cuddly adorable but watch out that lion packs a mean ROAR! and that hippo might sneak up on you and tip you in his water pool. You just never know!

I made this for the Stamp Something blog challenge - again another one I missed over the last few weeks but I love the challenge to fit a theme and create something so I went back to finish it.

The other goal was to practice with my Copic markers. I think the only way I am going to get anything decent with them is to color color color! I really like how my leaves turned out on this one. I was using the gray to add some shadow while still having color involved. I also was using my colorless blender to pull out to create light and dark tones. (Check the lions feet for the best one I got here) I stamped the images with my Noir Palette ink and let it dry a LONG time and then zapped it with the heat tool also just to be sure. Ok so it wasn't that long you now I am not that patient when I want to get coloring! he he...

I think they did well with that combo of the ink and zapping with the heat gun as I didn't get any bleeding.

I used some foam tape to add dimension to the letters and the animals after I matted them on some black to make a sort of frame for them. Here you can see the dimension from the side.

Other things used were:

Hip Hip LE T-2594
Hollo's paper
Palette Noir
Spare Parts Letters
Jungle LE T-2593
hmmm what is that sticky stuff on the back the white called - can't recall now but it is fun to use!
Copics: C3, B60, YR20, YG11, E53, Colorless Blender
