When I was looking through my stamps to make my project for the challenge I saw this tortoise from Gina K Designs Little Critters stamp set. It reminded me of our visit to Reptile World while on vacation. There were BIG tortoises that you could pet. Their head/neck and legs have a leather feel to them. Abbi and I also got to touch an alligator and she touched a python…not me though, I’m scare do death of snakes and do not go anywhere near them!
On to my sample –
I created a little scene for my tortoise. I used a brayer to add the sky and ground. The cattails image is from Gone Fishing. I stamped them on the ground and colored them with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. The sun, clouds and the grass are MFT dies. The tortoise is colored with copics – YG21, 91, 93, 97/E89. I cut him out and tucked him between the blades of grass. The sentiment is from Life is Good.
Be sure to pop over to the challenge and check out the samples the rest of the DT has made to share. As always, we would love for you to play along with us for a chance to win some fabulous prizes!
