Squigglefly Challenge - Animals

It's time for the Squigglefly Monday Challenge.

This week Maria is the hostess. She chose an ANIMAL KINGDOM theme with the instructions to include a Squigglefly animal somewhere on our creations.

Let me introduce you to Sherman!

I printed my sheep on swirly white designer paper. I then adhered the paper to white cardstock before cutting out the sheep so they would have some stability to them and make it easier to pop them up off the grassy hills I created for them to graze on.

One of the things I really like about digital images is the fact that you can resize them and flip them. The two sheep on my card are the same image, but one faces left while the other one faces right. I also made one of them smaller than the other one to help create the illusion of depth on my card.

The hills are actually four different pieces of green cardstock that I tore to give a textured uneven layering. I placed the grassy layers on top of a piece of cloudy sky designer paper.

The sentiment was punched out and placed on the card with two teeny tiny black brads.

Here are a few Squigglefly-related things you might like to check out:

  2. There's a Squigglefly chat group on SNR Card Universe. It's a lot of fun!
