DCM – Where the Wild Things Are

Posted by Jeannette on 12 October 2007

The Challenge at DCM today has been set by Kathy. The theme is ANIMAL and you can use anything that’s animal inspired – not those diddy little ones like bugs, birds and butterflies (though you can include them in your design of course) but what I’d really like to see is bigger, wilder, more fabulous or fantastic creatures.

I have a lovely little Elephant stamp that I bought a couple of weeks ago, and have been waiting for an excuse to use. This was the perfect opertuniy but do you think I can find it, No! Worst of all though is OH was with me when I bought so I know I haven’t hidden it anywhere!

So I did these instead, I love these Decoupage kits, they are so easy to do. This first one is Barbara’s Decoupage Wait for me!… Kit, and yes you guessed it, it’s from Daisy Company.

I’ve left the top of the card open because my idea is to to either put the name of the person getting the card, or a different sentiment like “We’re Moving” or something like that.

This next card is Barbara’s Swinging Around Z Card, graphics by Sarah Minor, another Daisy Company Kit, it was included in the Club D.A.I.S.Y. October Issue.

I Crystal Lacquered the Banana’s and the Tree Trunk.

    WOW do great work! I’ve tried a couple of the cards with the layers, I just don’t have the patience to cut them out, and layer them…but yours are great and so are all your other cards!

    I don’t have the patience for decoupage – all that fiddly cutting out! Yours look great, I think the elephants would make a great ‘We’re moving’ card. You could even do a trunk pun :o) (We’ve packed our trunks and we’re moving, maybe?)
