Summer Challenge: Day 40 - A Day at the Zoo 40! And I haven't missed a single challenge yet!!  WOO HOO!!!

I had a lot ideas about today's challenge.  At first I wanted to free hand some of my favorite animals, then I was going to stamp different animal patterns.  I ended up going with just stamping a favorite animal.  This is actually a design that I have been wanting to do for awhile.  I have seen this on other ladies pages and really like it!  Plus my new Bundle Monster plates have the perfect stamp!

I started with 2 coats of butter LONDON Cheeky Chops, which you saw yesterday so I skipped the picture today.  Using OPI Get in the Expresso Lane and BM313, I added my animal print.  I also added 2 coats of HK Girl.

My favorite part about this design is the texture of the stamp. I think it really looks like furry, textured animal skin.  I would change the yellow though.  It's too yellow-y, needs more of a brown tone mixed in.  I say this but I really do love the way my giraffe turned out!
