Pile It On! Challenge - Animals Dressed Up!

We have a new Pile It On! Challenge starting today, with a really fun theme:

'Animals Dressed Up!'

Our sponsor for this challenge is QKR Stampede:

I picked a stamp by Penny Black called 'Bee Costume!' which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding some sparkle to his wings using a Sakura Stardust pen. I paired it with papers from the 'Breeze' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and  black gel pen. The cute 'happy bee-day' sentiment stamp is by Stampendous, the flowers are from Poppicrafts, and are held in place using tiny BasicGrey brads.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:

For more information from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
