All Sorts of Animals at Allsorts Challenge

Hello and welcome! 

It's time for a new theme already at Allsorts, Lolo chose the theme of "All Sorts of Animals" for this week, so any domestic, wild, safari animals, even birds or bugs but no mythical creatures please for this challenge. We have two fantastic prizes to give away this week too, the AAll and Create "Love Birds" stamp set and a Bee Crafty Safari animals stamp set. Hope you'll join us for your chance to win!

I recently purchased my first bag of cherries this summer and that inspired me to ink up this cute image from the Penny Black clear set Micey Day which is hard to find but it appears that the exact stamp is also part of their clear set Homemade. 

Stamped with Versafine Onyx on Bristol Vellum and colored with Zig Clean Color and Distress inks. I used a white Posca pen to add white details on the bowl. Then fussy cut. I adhered the image on a scalloped circle die cut

I used this month's Four Season's Challenge mood board as inspiration when I started coloring the image and ended up getting several other ideas from the mood boards for my design, including the stripes (I used Altenew's Classy Stripes stencil) and the black printed paper which reminds me of the chalkboard on the first image on the mood board (see below).  

I added a sticky quote from one of Tim Holtz's quotations sets and decided to add some natural jute twine to finish it off. 

Here is a closeup:
