Heh, heh, heh, bet that got your attention!  I combined a couple of challenges from different blogs and came up with that title; Winter Wonderland want to see Travel as their theme this week and ABC Christmas is at the very end of the alphabet and want to see Zoo Animals.  So there you have it, traveling zoo animals.

I’m still practicing with my new Prisma pencils, I spent Sunday afternoon colouring at the kitchen work top and I’ve got two more images I’m happy with and this one that’s OK but not the best in my opinion.  Still usable certainly but I struggled with the large one colour car, couldn’t seem to get much depth on it.  I also switched to mineral oil from OMS for this image and found it much easier to use than the OMS so I’ll be sticking with that for now.

I kept the LO quite simple, sometimes it’s hard to place these big images.  The paper is new for Christmas, it’s Stampin Up Be of Good Cheer set and I used some dark green card as a mat.  A Wild Rose Studio sentiment, some glitter on the snow on the side of the road, some Liquid Pearls for falling snow and a little bit of bakers twine is all I added.

I did the sky with a water colour wash using Distress Inks, it was too large an area to use Prisma’s on, but I think I over did it though!  Looks a bit like they’re driving through a winter storm and the little baby bear in the back seat is wondering if they’ll ever arrive in time to deliver the presents!!
