I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #66 - Animals

It's time for another I ♥ Promarkers Challenge and this week the theme is Animals.  Our prize sponsor this week is Crafty Emma's Store.

My original design concept for this week's DT card was very different to the finished project !  Do you ever do this ?  Have a clear design in mind and then it sort of has a life of it's own and develops into somethig else ? 

I've had this fun Piggy stamp by Nellie Snellen for a long time without getting it inky, so I thought it was a great opportunity to use it at last.  I also stamped a small flower cluster at the lefthand side using a mini stamp by Studio G.

The image is coloured with Promarkers and I punched the edges of the image layer and the green layer underneath using a Martha Stewart border punch.  The sentiment is also a Studio G stamp and the buttons were from my stash.  I added Glossy Accents on the wellies for both piggy and his tiny teddy pal and also the flowers in the bush.  I created the flower with various punches with Waco Pearlmaker Pen for the centre and also the bodies of the punched butterflies.  The fronds were cut out with a MS punch and the bp was a magazine freebie.

I hope you'll enter the challenge this week, just drop by the I ♥ Promarkers Challenge Blog for full details and to add a link to your project.

Happy Crafting !
