Pile It On! Challenge - Land and/or Water Animals

It's time for some more inspiration for this month's Pile It On! Challenge where the themes are:

'Land Animals'
and/or
'Water Animals'

We are sponsored for this challenge by A Day for Daisies


Prize - $8 Gift Certificate!

I found a cute Crafter's Companion stamp in my collection of a bear and his puppy fishing that combined the two themes...it's called 'Gone Fishing' from the Mulberry Wood collection. I coloured it using watercolour pencils to match some snippets of patterned papers that are from the 'Awesome Boy' pad by Recollections/Michaels (found at TKMaxx). I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
