A is for Anthropoid

This fortnight the letter for The Craft Barn dictionary challenge is A with no extra twists.  I don't get to use this stamp often so initially I thought of ape, but anthropoid is a much better definition... like a human, such as a chimpanzee, that resembles a human.  What could be more human than wearing a top hat?

Materials used:
Archival Ink: jet black
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint: little black dress, snowflake, London bus, 
haystack, china, blue oyster 
The Crafters Workshop: mini circle explosion
Stampers Anonymous: shatter THS014
Katzelkraft: so special
Impression Obsession: solar system
Kaisercraft: film edges

J is for Jungle

The Craft Barn dictionary challenge for this fortnight is the letter J with a dragonfly included somewhere.  For quite a few days I was convinced I was going with jigsaw but at the last moment I felt more in the mood for a jungle.  Although I've gone with a fantasy idea of a jungle I quite like the definition which includes 'place of intense struggle for survival', seems pretty apt.

Dylusions paint: lemon zest, fresh lime, cut grass, vibrant turquoise, London blue 
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish: snowflake
Dylusions: doodle parts, further around the edge 
Hero Arts: CL337
Hobbycraft: eucalyptus,  owls
PaperArtsy: JOFY33,

Woodware: climbing up
unknown guinea fowl stamp
