Animal Crackers at Southern Girls

Opps...I'm must have been really keen to post this since the Mojo returned as I've posted it a week early!  Well you get an extra week to do your challenge entry for Southern Girls!  Opps sorry Lou and Tracy......I'm blaming the antibiotics and sore mouth.

Hi everyone, it seems my mojo made quick return the other day.  I was asked to select an image from The Paper Shelter for my Southern Girls DT make this challenge and I went to look, I was so excited browsing through all the gorgeous digi's that I forgot to check what the challenge theme was!

My little granddaughter just loves Rapunzel and plays that she is swinging through the house on her long, long hair.  So I just had to do this image up for her.

I took a couple of  pics prior to placing this in behind the glass in the frame.  I printed Rapunzel out on an A4 sheet of Xpress It card then using my Multiliner, I extended the brickwork both horizontally and vertically.

 Here is a closer shot of Rapunzel herself, I just had to do her in similar colours to the image at the store, although her hair is darker here in the photo, it's not quite this red in reality!  Of course there had to be bling in the flowers in her hair and there is clear spica pen over the green to make it sparkle.

At some point AFTER this was completed, I realised that the challenge was animals!  EEK!  I thought of trying to draw in a Chameleon but my drawing skills are not that good, so what better than die cut butterflies filled with glitter?  That's my animal contribution, technically, butterflies are insects, but insects are animals, so I hope I'm covered....LOL

 Here she is in her frame, it was difficult to get a clear picture without reflections showing up in the glass, so I tried again once she was hanging on the wall.

I hope you're inspired to join our challenge this fortnight, Animal Crackers! at the Southern Girls, I think you can even get away with using a butterfly or three!

While you're at it, why not join in on these fabulous challenges as well !!!
