Reptiles and scales and amphibians and lots and lots of colour

Ooh, I really enjoyed creating these ATCs. Really, really, REALLY enjoyed it! They're for a 4x4 swap I'm hosting over on Docrafts, and they really are good fun to do- did you get that I liked making these????


Love 'em! The background was made using lots of my mate Kay's spray inks (Dylusions and Crafty Notions) in very bright colours. I have lots of Cosmic Shimmers but there don't have the mica in and as a result have more of a matt finish, well a lot less sparkly anyway. I love the brightness of them. I then stamped lots of snakeskin and reptile scale background stamps over the lovely inky colours.

Kay has a fine collection of frogs and reptiles so....... I added......

a chameleon

a frog

a lizard

and another frog.

Lots of punched and die cut flowers and leaves, and some definitions from an old encyclopedia pulled it together. The idea with the 4x4 set is that they work as a set put together, but still stand alone as individual ATCs. 

I'm entering these into the Stampotique Designers challenge, which is Animal, insect or bird, and also into Let's Ink It Up's latest challenge which is to use die cuts or punches. I'm also entering it into Wild Orchid challenge which is dieing to punch it out.
