Animals


 Oh my days - an animal challenge just after the wonderful Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun release - Just knew immidiatly what I wanted to use. I started of using the owl bag template , I reduced the actual size to 65% it still made for a great size, and for those without a cutting machine I cut them by hand to see how easy they were, and they were great it was good to use scissors for a change. 


I started by making the Hen night Bride to be I called her Olga , all her papers and bits are from the Love and Kisses collection - I simply added some Lace for her dress and some netting for her veil and lots of diamond stickles , just adore her glasses , I popped a little acetate behind them , and her eyelashes are full of sparkle neither shows very well on camera, I think she is a little shy .



I loved her so much I went on to make her husband to be calling him Oswald again all the elements from Love and Kisses collection including his moustache!


(He also borrowed Santa's boots from Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun  ssshhhh). The papers I used on Oswald are from Octavia collection
So here is too the happy couple (although he looks shell shocked beyond belief) they were named by my good friend Yvonne ** Mr and Mrs Ogilive**

Use an old collection


 Ohhhh a lovely easy challenge for me as I love using bits and bobs from the older collections , I always find some right gems on them. I decided this time to use my most loved and treasured  Bonbon Belles 
 but using a character I had not used before (at least I dont think I have) Pirate Jack . I have coloured him with Graph'It Markers, and added glamour dust to his sword. 


The Boat was cut on my portrait adding some stickles for the water. The cute little fish, treasure chest, Octopus and balloon all from Bonbon Belles (added a touch of gold stickles to the chest)
