It's A Jungle!

March is here and as I am typing this post we are experiencing unseasonable double digit temperatures - the snow is almost gone and it feels like Spring! 

These warm temperatures made me feel like colouring an image that feels like nice warm weather! 

Meet "Walk About Wally" who is out on a hike in the jungle. I wonder if he knows he has a monkey friend watching him!?

This card was a marathon to be honest! It was a good idea in my brain but it was hours of colouring and fussy cutting - I can say however, I am very happy with the end result! 

I started by stamping, colouring (with alcohol markers) and fussy cutting all of my images. The jungle background was stamped and coloured 4 times to have enough pieces to put my scene together. I cut my patterned cloud paper and mounted them on cardstock and stamped my sentiment. All the pieces were put together on my sidestep card base and voila!
