Jungle Fever

Good morning fellow crafters, I hope I find you well.
As it's Tuesday it must mean a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. This week we would like to see your masculine projects on the theme of -

EXOTIC/JUNGLE WILDLIFE

Now again that rather stumped me but never one to be defeated I had a trawl through my stash and came up with a few ideas. I must admit that a challenge is a good springboard for my card design but this time the ideas wouldn't come together so looking at my paper stash I came across some jungle paper from Nancy Watts in an old Making Cards mag. The digi stamps I had in mind didn't really work so rather than buy more I thought about punch art and came up with this.


I made the giraffe using various die cuts and punched shapes from some scrap card which I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo DI and then pinched a few googly eyes from my Grandson's craft box in the kitchen. I did buy him some to replace them!
The foliage was cut with dies and punches from the leftover DP and arranged on a die cut panel of off-white textured card floating around on the desk. and then stuck to the base of khaki coloured card. 
Die cut circles were cut from the top panel and DP and mounted on foam pads after the giraffe was arranged peeking through the gap. The circular greeting from Molly Bloom was stamped in Versafine Olympia Green and mounted on a slightly larger circle of khaki card.
OK that's about it, pop over to the main site to check out what the rest of the team have been up to and then why not join us this week.

I would like to join in at the following challenges -

Simply Create Too - No Digis or Stamped images
