June Pin Up Challenge at Bombshell Stamps

Grrr... Wild Thing

Here is my take on my OWN challenge for Bombshell Stamps Monthly Pin Up Challenge.
If you didnt know, I am Bombshell Stamps Guest Design Team Member for the month of June :) .

I had been thinking long and hard about what I was going to do for a challenge... previous challenges were wedding themed, linens and lace, and now.. its my turn! I had thought about doing something different, like anything but a card... but while I was writing a PM to Kathi, I came up with the idea... WILD THING. I came up with this due to the fact, Diem's cat just had babies!! So I had cats on the noggin there for a while. I think this was a brilliant idea now, as I was just recently organizing my paper and I never realized how much animal print paper I have! So why not use it up!

I figure that the Cat idea might be a hit, and easier theme for most of the ladies. I decided to come up with a second example. I came up with the peacock idea after rummaging through my Recollections Animal Kingdom paper.

The cat card and the peacock card are both a Easel card. I love to make Easel cards. They are soooooooo fun! and simple, once you get the hang of it all. All papers are Recollections.  Both have their own accents on them. I made the cat tail and ears myself, hand written sentiments, and detail work. Both lovely ladies have been colored and paper pieced. Colored with Prismacolor and Stampin Up Stampin Write Markers. I really enjoyed how paper piecing gives it a different appearance. For example, the feathers have been cut of feather patterned paper that matches the outfit on the Peacock bombshell.

I hope you enjoy, and I hope you come out and play with us!!!
