Simply Sweet Jungle

Hello lovely peeps

For today's card I've used another new Simply Sweet set, this one is called Jungle.

I designed the card in CraftArtist, starting with a 5"x7" white rectangle and adding coloured circles. I used the Fill tool and moved the gradient 'handles' to make the colours paler at the top. This fabulous card by Laura Bassen was my inspiration.

 Once the circles were in place I pulled in the Jungle digi stamps and removed their white backgrounds with the Cutout Studio. They needed a little shrinking before dragging into place over the circles.

After printing the project out I coloured the animals in with Promarkers
Monkey: Apricot, Caramel, Burnt Sienna
Giraffe: Daffodil Bloom & Mustard,  Grey Squirrel, Warm Grey 2, 3 & 5
Hippo: Grey Squirrel, Warm Grey 2 & 3

It was at this point that I realised that I had accidently erased one of the giraffe's ossicones (the nobbly bits on his head that look like horns) so I added little black pearls to cover the mistake :o)

Next I added a layer of white card over the top, with circles die-cut out of it to reveal the coloured sections on the card base underneath.

The sentiment is from the Kitty Wishes set again - I removed the white background with Cutout Studio, changed the text to white and put it on a black background before printing out and cutting into a fishtail shape.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
 AAA  #130 three of something
The Crafty Addicts #55 Anything Goes
2 Crafty Critter Crazies #21 Anything Goes with a critter
Animal Friends Challenge  #69 Anything Goes
