Morning -
Today is the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme is Animal Magic. I have used this fab image called Teamwork.

I printed my image and coloured it in with Promarkers before I die cut the edge with a My Favourite Things scalloped stitched edge die. To the side of this I cut a piece of striped grey paper from My Minds eye Necessity pad. I mounted it all onto Green satin card - you can't tell from this pic but it is even all the way around (My issue with balance would not allow it to be otherwise!!) But because I have raised the coloured image panel up using 3d foam - it is hidden a little! I tied neutral  twine around the entire panel before I glued it down. I then added some Heart from Wycinanka which I coloured using Promakers. I also did this on the "Believe" which is from Make it Crafty. I have to say I am a little bit obsessed with these double layered words!! Finally I added a little flag of green ribbon and a little Wooden embellishment from My Minds Eye.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image -
Tree - Sandstone, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Walnut & Henna.
Grass - Leaf Green, Grass,  Emerald, Lush Green & Forest.
Pandas - Black & Blue Greys with Cocktail Pink ears & feet.
Bamboo - Linen & Forest Green.
Hearts - Red & Carmine.
Believe - Leaf Green, Grass & Emerald with Blue Grey 5 as base layer.
Finally I edged the entire image with Powder Blue which I then blended in to give a soft finish.

I would love to see all your makes with Animals included entered into the challenge.... Just look at the value of what you could win! Thats a fantastic prize and there are so many great images to choose from!!
