Jungle Jaguar

     I love this magnificent jaguar (Morgan's Artworld) and had a wonderful time coloring him.


I started with the sketch from The Outlawz.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, then die cut it with a rectangle die from Spellbinders.  Both of the mats for the image were also cut but the dies are from QuicKutz.  I used distressed dps and scored and tore the papers by hand to get a rough edge on them.  All the papers were in my scrap pile which is why I have that particular combo of yellow, gold, and greens.

     The gold ribbon is from my stash and I used a five inch scrap of yellow satin ribbon to make the bow-tie bow.  The butterfly is cut with a Cheery Lynn die.  Finally, I added some punched snowflake shapes, but punched them from green CS so they'd look like flowers instead.  The sentiment is mine.

     My week has been so productive already it almost feels like I should be able to take the rest of the week off.  :-D  Oh, well, two more days like the last two and I'll find a way to reward myself for everything that has gotten done.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
