Adorable Numbats

Happy Happy Tuesday My Sweet Friends

I sure hope your weekend was fabulous!!  

Mine was busy working on some coloring projects and one of them was this adorable Numbat image from Aurora Wings.  Mitzi Sato-Wiuff is the very talented artist and designer of all images from Aurora Wings.  



Mitzi is very passionate about Numbats and she had a fundraiser "Color for a Cause" to help raise awareness with the donations going to a conservation study. I was so delighted to have received this sweet image free for making a donation to such a worthy cause for these adorable marsupials.

Mitizi is having a coloring challenge for everyone who donated and this is the project I made.  This is an altered wood block.

I colored with my Copics and used the following colors:

E23, E25, E27
R20, R81, R83
BV20, BV23, BV25
G12

I sanded the block. 
Painted it brown.
Covered all of it with a burgundy cardstock.
Added a coating of Mod Podge.
Added another layer of a coordinating cardstock to the front of block.
I fussy cut out the Numbat image and used more Mod Podge as a sealant.
I added bling on the outside edges.

I really wanted to make something I could display in my craft area to keep as a memento.  This really was a fun project to make.

If you haven't seen any of the amazing images from "Aurora Wings" I hope you will check out her Etsy Shop and if you can - come join us on Facebook and join in all the fun.



Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always appreciate it and your sweet comments always make me smile.

Have a blessed day!!

With hugs and smiles
