The Friday Mashup team was kind enough to choose me as a Mashup Maven last week so I was able to get a preview of this week’s challenge:
It is an inspiration challenge! How fun! Somehow, when I see the animals together I think of Fox & Friends so that was where I started. I also found a new challenge called Try Stampin’ On Tuesday and they have a fun sketch this week. I pulled out the animals in the set to figure out who I wanted to use and kept thinking about some cute wagons and arks I have been seeing with this set. It was also fun to pull out some colors I haven’t used in a while, specifically Tangerine Tango. This orange was really perfect for the giraffe and I love the paper choices with it in the Brights Designer Paper Pack.
I created the wagon out of 1/4″ strips of Early Espresso and added a little piercing to mimic the hardware on a wagon. A piece of Old Olive was cut to fit behind and I snipped it to look like grass. The handle is simply a narrow strip of card stock with a single scallop from the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Buttons for the wheels were the final touch. I added a little more piercing to the Tangerine Tango panel and to the corner of the image for texture. Finally I punched the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with the 1 3/8″ x 5/8″ Oval Punch and created a layer behind using the same punch.
Hope you get to play along with this fun challenge. Thanks, again, to the design team for choosing me as a Maven!!
