Copic Creations Challenge #29


Hello and happy June 1! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day. We just got back yesterday from our fabulous trip to Alaska on a cruise. What gorgeous country!!! I'll post some pics soon - this was our second trip there and I'm ready to go again....well, maybe I'll wait just a bit.
Our challenge this time is "coloring animals" and we have some awesome cards done by our DT from our sponsor, Hambo Stamps. Be sure to check out the challenge blog here for the details and to see what wonderful creations the DT came up with. I got to color this adorable gorilla which I entitled "Gorilla Gossip". I had to use my Basic Grey "Origins" paper with it and my sentiment is from Flourishes' "Gigi and Chloe" set. The palm tree is a brad that I twisted the prongs off of and I made a flower with my Nellie Snellen punches. I hope you like it and get to join in on this fun challenge. I'll be by soon to catch up on what you all have been up to. I hope your month of June is lovely in every way.

Your use of deliberate streaking for this gorilla's fur makes him look so interesting and very realistic-looking. Love it! Thanks for sharing!
