I've based my dare on the book by Graeme Base called 'Animalia' (just because that book happened to be sitting near my desk when I realised it was my turn for the dare this week).So, all you have to do is create a card featuring an animal.
I was a bit stuck for an idea and for a while I thought I might even have to actually use those Cuttlebug animal dies that I've had sitting, unused in the box for ooooh must be a year now! Also in the dies box I found that QK cute little lamb die (the one Em hates.....) and then I noticed the QK little doggie one, also never yet used to make a card and I had a lightbulb moment!Well, the doggie die still hasn't been used but here's the card it inspired me to make I based the card on my handbag, so here are both the real and the card version posng together! It's a pretty simple design, I used two shades of pearlised card, some eyelets and some gel pens to make the bag. I just drew a mini version of the original doggie, then used a tiny silver brad for the eye, and ribbon and a split-ring from my beading stuff to make his collar and lead. There are all sorts of animals featured on the Design Team cards this week and I can't wait to see which, and how many different animals the darers manage to get onto their cards this time. Pop over and visit the DCM and take a look, and hopefully you'll be inspired to have a go your self too
