Jungle Baby!



Hi everyone! I have been wanting to do more coloring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge but, as we all know, life sometimes gets in the way! I did find some time to create a couple of cards and this watercolor jungle scene is one of them! I was asked to make a jungle baby shower card and thought I would use the opportunity to enter the Color Throwdown #432 Challenge too! 




My colors aren't quite what the inspiration pic shows but close enough! I stamped these adorable jungle animals in light colored distress inks and then watercolored them in some fun babyish shades. I also stamped lots of tropical leaves and gave them a wash of watercolor in bright greens!



Behind all of the layering, there is a comic book frame that I watercolored in a light red. I used some fun animal print papers in yellows and greens to fill in the blank areas. They were a bit bright so I softened them by covering them in vellum and you are still able to see all of the fun prints!



All of the watercolored pieces each have a little Wink of Stella glitter on them. My pictures don't quite pick up on that but in person the shimmer is so pretty and perfect for this baby card! I added in a super sweet baby sentiment as well as some tiny iridescent blue hearts. So adorable!


Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!

Supplies Used:
Grafix Vellum
Martha Stewart 'Blueberry Slush' hearts
Offray ribbon
