DCM - Wild Thing!


What a wild dare there's been this week over on DCM, it's all Kathy's fault, here's what she said....Hellooooo, Kathy here to set you a really Beastly dare this week! 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 So you could maybe use animal die cuts, animal prints on paper or fabric, or maybe animal words or phrases "grrrrr get down tiger"!!!! You could invent your own wild and wonderful beasties, or go back in time for dinosaurs, or into the world of mythology for all sorts of incredible creatures. How about a card in the shape of a tiger, elephant or monkey? Now, there's a challenge for you.... I'd love you to all go really wild over this one and have loads of beastly fun

I made the tiger out of funky foam, a bit fiddly bute cute I think

The writing is done by hand because when I went to my clear alphabet set I discovered that i've managed to lose my 'h' grrrrr.

I even gave him a little tail for the inside view!
