Polkadoodles Craft Blog –Madagascar!

Good morning everybody, hope everything is OK.

Well after my Digi Choosday post yesterday I am ‘bothering’ the Polkadoodles Blog today with a little tutorial.  I show how I created this wall hanger, featuring the characters, Melman, Gloria, Alex and Marty from the cartoon movie Madagascar…hence the post title. 

I do like to challenge myself and make something just to see if I can.  Saying that I have absolutely no idea why I created this or why the thought popped into my head.  In fact the movie was on TV the other week but I had made this way before then so I’m as baffled as you probably are.

So if you have a burning desire to put a motley crew of animals on your wall I show you how you can do it by using just 2 of the mega versatile Polkadoodles Die Sets (well 3 if you count the whiskers I cut from the cat set).

Pop over to the BLOG and take a look!

Polkadoodles Goodies:

Other Stuff:
Letter Colouring: Copics
The Rest: Box Card – Gesso – Acrylic Paint – Hessian Ribbon - Googly Eyes

Thanks so much for visiting and I appreciate you taking the time to comment! 
Enjoy your day!

See ya!
