Challenge #2 Midway reminder - Quirky Pets

We are halfway through our Quirky Pets challenge and it is great to see all the different entries. If you haven't already submitted your entry there is still plenty of time to join in!

Here is a reminder of what we want to see for this challenge:
As it is Pet Owner’s day on 18th April I decided to go for a quirky pets theme. For this we want to see either unusual pets, or pets doing unusual things. Our lovely sponsor for this challenge is 

Here is some more inspiration from the DT:

This time I've chosen the turtle. I used masking tape to create a panel within the frame and sponged it with distress inks, then coloured and die cut the turtle to layer on to it. I added several layers of card to match the colouring, finishing each one in a different way - deckle edge scissors, a plain straight edge and a die cut border. Heart shaped gems to match the heart on the turtle's shell are the finishing touch.
For the mid month inspiration I used the snail, coloured with Promarkers. I doodled in the frame to add a bit of extra interest. The background paper was plain so I added some stamped hearts from the Stampin' Up Confetti stamp. It still needed something extra so I added a strip of washi tape underneath the image.

Loved this little elephant. Coloured it with spectrum noir markers, layered with die cut shapes with a doily die cut underneath. The background paper is from Pink Petticoat.

As I have a wormery and therefore technically keep worms as pets I thought I would use the Worm digi for my reminder inspiration post. I coloured him in woth promarkers, and he is stripey like the worms in my wormery are :). I die-cut him into an oval and layered him onto a glitter die-cut mount. I used the same glitter to die-cut some flowers and then some patterned paper from my scrap box for a row of wildflowers. I slipped the worm in behind these so it looks as though he is creeping along. I added the flower to balance the card. Please check out my blog for more information.
