Go Wild!

Hi - Ann here today using a fun new stamp set by Gerda Steiner - this one comes with matching dies, so a bonus there too!  It is Go Wild - and includes the cutest wild animals (not likely to scare anyone!) and a safari truck and explorer - too cute!

 I had the black square on my desk, and because it had the embossed lines like rays, I thought it might look like the group were on a night-time hunt, so that was the base of my little picture.

It was such fun to stamp and colour this collection - I will list the Copic colours I used below, but I will explain that I tried to make it look 'dusty' so added streaks rather than trying to blend properly (as if!).  Can you see what I did with the elephant trunk?  I wanted him to hang over the windscreen so sliced beside his trunk, letting it hang over.  He is so cute, so I was worried that I might spoil him, but I love how it turned out!

My lighting wasn't too good today, so for my second photo I have 'adjusted' it, but quite liked the bright glow behind the intrepid explorers so left it as is:)

Copic colours used:
Elephant:  cool greys - C1, C2, C5 and R20 for the inside of his ears.
Giraffe:  E53, E02, E35 and R20
Safari man:  E53, E02, BG93, YG91, E33, E35, E37
Car:  YG03, BG93, YG17 and cool greys for the tyres.
