CD 403 - Little Buddies

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 403! 

This week it's all about browns although two other colours are to be used in addition to the browns. Black, white and gold are free to use. 

I really struggled with this as brown is probably the colour I use the least. Adding two other colours really helped me with this challenge. As you will see, my focus is not on the browns - they just happen to be a part of my card. 

I stamped and coloured several little animals - all were stamped in black and two are black and white by nature so they were not coloured. I really wanted to use the pig so that drove me toward pink. A good contrasting colour was Lagoon. I had to look hard to find pink and Lagoon patterns that weren't too large or combined with other colours as those papers were used to fill in the empty circles. 

I rotated some of the animals and added a sentiment in one of the middle circles. This multi-circle window die makes life so easy to create a card like this!
