Humphrey's Animal Antics


This fortnight's challenge from CCC Digi Creations is Animal Antics. 
I loved this image from our wonderful sponsor Oak Pond Creations.

 It reminded me of a wonderful children's book that I own, Humphrey's First Christmas by Carol Heyer.  Humphrey is a camel with serious attitude!!

I coloured both Humphrey and the background with chalks,

Then 'sat' him on a red (with a silver pattern) blanket to ground him.

Love the expression on his face!

I even gave the 'blanket' a fringe.

Although the photo looks as though the sky is light, IRL it is quite dark, hence the stars.
I enjoyed making this card, and hope you have enjoyed it too.
