Sundays with Crissy Challenge #27--Animals!

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to another new challenge at "Sundays with Crissy"!! Our theme for March is... "Animals!"
Fur, Feathers, Claws, long as it's an animal we'd love to see it!

I had SO much trouble choosing which image to use for this challenge... not because I couldn't find an image I liked - but from the ABUNDANCE of cute little animals Crissy has created! I love them ALL!
I narrowed it down by making it a challenge... choosing something I've never done before.
(i.e. Picking something that I've been too scared to attempt before LOL!)

I chose the absolutely adorable "Lilly Filly" and merged her with the "Meadow Background", both by Crissy Armstrong (of course!), and available from the fabulous Whimsy Stamps. I was having so much fun stretching myself that I was even brave enough to try Copic Clouds, as seen in Annika Ryan's wonderful "Colouring Sky" tutorial! It was my first attempt, so I was didn't think it was tooo bad lol! ;)

Here is the end result...

And  a close up of the image...

So now it's your turn... Make your way back over to the Sundays with Crissy blog and play along too - I can't wait to see your "Animal" creations! You can enter at Sarah's Post - Here!

Hope you all have a fabulous week!
