Animals at Sundays With Crissy

Hello all, I have my DT project for Sundays With Crissy to show today. This month the theme is Animals, so get out your animal images and join in!

Crissy has the cutest little fawn image, called Newborn Joon, and I thought I'd give it a go. I was a bit nervous because I do find animals more difficult to do, but this one was actually much easier than I thought once I got going. It's coloured in copics, and I used the E10's family as they gave a lovely red-brown set of shades which was perfect for a little baby red deer. In keeping with my kinda-new-years-resolution to use some of those neglected unloved shades, I chose a previously unused red violet (RV29, teamed with some reds) for the neck ribbon and bow. 

The card is very Clean and Simple, just some nice paper, a die cut circle and a little ribbon. The paper is Prima Annalee, die cuts are Spellbinders Lacey circles, Nestabilities Standard circles, and the ribbon was recycled from a chocolate box.


Going for the Clean and Simple look

If you fancy playing along, you have till 31 March (noon US time) to upload. Hope you come and join us this month. Happy crafting!

Hi Carol, lovely to see you posting. A beautiful card, and a delightful image beautifully coloured.
I always buy myself a birthday/mothers day and Christmas present, usually something that I really want but don't necessarily need :o)

Hey, sweet Carole....it seems like ages since I have been to visit you!! Hope all is well across the pond!!! Thanks for the well wishes...I am feeling a little better. No fever but I can't shake the cough...I sound like an 80 year old man...LOL!!!
When I first saw your little deer, I was sooo blown away....the dimension you achieve with your fabulous coloring is phenomenal!!! The little deer looks like he could just pop up and walk off the screen!!!! I love how you added the shading in the grass, too, and the bow colors match the background perfectly!! This is one, gorgeous CAS design, girlfriend!!!!
