WILD THING

Hey All! Happy Labor Day to each of you. I hope you all are enjoying a long weekend. Today is also another Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air. So that means another new FREE image for you to grab up there. It also means a new challenge using the free image.

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge. Here is the sketch and my card using this week's FREE image below:





Another cute image by Nina May. Because the larger part of the image is a lion, I once again went with a wild animal/jungle theme. Honestly, I have absolutely no idea who the paper is by. There was nothing on the back of any of the sheets. I used a jungle like leafy patteren paper for the background paper and for the panels, I used the animal prints. I colored the image with colored pencils and oms. The sky background was sponged with light blue Colorbox ink. The hearts are also part of the image, and I added little heart shaped rhinestones on them. The paw print flowers are from a chip board set that I bought over a year ago when I first started this thing called stamping. I thought they were perfect to finish the element from the sketch.



So, there you have it. Be sure to run over an pick up your FREE image. Just click HERE.

I'm sorry I have been missing in action, but I promise you I will have a post on Wednesday that will be full of unique stuff I want to share. I'll also be visiting each of you this week to catch up with what you have been doing. Can't wait to see what you have been up to! And there will be a new pic of the week as well!

Again, thanks so much for your support of my work. It means so much to me!

Best,

Curt O'Brien
