Zoofari cards part 1

Hi there! So my kids challeneged me to use the Zoofari set for my next 5 card challenge...I have gotten 2 cards done with this set so far and I think it is starting to grow on me...This was a set I pre-ordered last year and just never really played with.

This was the first card I made, and by far one of my favorite cards to date! I played with the paper layering technique and am quite happy with how it turned out. I tried to watercolor a little on his body for shading, but am not quite happy with how his bottom turned out :(

Here is a close up of how the layers look together. I thought this would make a great kids birthday card of welcome baby card.

For this card I started with the CB'ed piece of Bravo Burgundy and build the rest of the card around it. I got the color combo from my Color Coach. This is Bravo Burgundy, Handsome Hunter, Mellow Moss and Apricot Appeal. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line all the birds up and watercolored them. It is hard to see in the picture, but the tag says "Time To".

Be on the look out for more cards to come as I keep playing with the 5 card challenge. I may not always make all five of one set at one time, but eventually they all will get done.
