Daisy Doodles #51 Anything Goes

At Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges we have a new challenge today

Anything Goes

For my card I have used this cute image of Sidney the Koala. You will receive it in 3 formats for only $2.  Head over to the Daisy Doodles Store to check them it out !

I coloured the Koala with Promarkers & Flexmarkers using the blender to pen to add some stippling to the fur and some longer tufts on his ears. I added a second layer for his head and decoupaged it using 3d foam. I love his little adorable face J

The image is matted onto a scrap of brown card and I used some handmade paper which has flocked leaves on it for the background. As Sidney is hugging the tree I thought a sentiment featuring the word hug would be appropriate and used a ticket that was a freebie from SGT Stamper.

When I was younger my maternal Grandad gave me a real Koala which he had brought back from Australia when he was in the Navy. It had been stuffed and I loved to touch the fur as it was so soft. I guess as kid I never realised it was wrong to have a real stuffed animal and wouldn’t dream of doing so today. I would much rather see a real live one than a stuffed one, and maybe one day I would be lucky enough to hold one…..


I hope you will pop over to the blog to see the lovely creations on there from the rest of the DT and we look forward to seeing your entries in for our Anything Goes challenge.

WONDERFUL!!! Love the color contrast of your card and that cute Koala! At first I thought you got to raise a LIVE Koala when you were younger. WOW...LOL. But to pet one that doesn't run away was pretty amazing too, I'm sure.

Thank you for the beautiful entry at The Squirrel & The Fox!
