Anything Goes Challenge - Animals

Another challenge from Anything Goes and this time its Animals. I had great fun with this challenge and as you can see there are lots of animals on my project!

My grandson is 3 in a couple of weeks and has just moved into his own room so what better than a door sign? He loves going to the zoo (and he is quite funny when he mimics the animal sounds) so a jungle theme seemed a good choice - and of course it fitted in nicely with our challenge.

I have used a canvas board and painted it with various acrylic paints smooching them in together to get the random effect. The animals, leaves, vines, flowers and bananas are all stamps from Creative Expressions sets, Jungle Friends, Monkeying Around and Animal Safari which were coloured with promarkers and cut out.
The palm trees, grass and the sign post are sissix dies which I have cut out of coredinations and sanded and the sign post was also embossed with the cuttlebug wood grain embossing folder. The letters are chipboard painted with Fresco Finish paints - firstly all over with Hey Presto then using a wet baby wipe Hyde Park and Chocolate Pudding were dabbed on to give them a khaki effect.
I can't wait to see his face when he sees this! I just know he is going to love it!
Don't forget to visit the Craft Den for all your goodies!
