Lunar Animal Ruler

It's hump-day already so I'm here with my mid-week creation for Dies to Die For.  I bought a ruler that you can customise from Staples Office Depot.  The back of the ruler opens and you can slide in a decorated card strip which is then sealed back inside when you clip the back piece in place again.

The ruler is fairly narrow, so I needed to use some dinky images. The Lunar Animal cuties from Mama Elephant were the perfect size so I created a line-up of them.  They were nice and easy to watercolour and I shaded around the edge of the panel with blue ink to create some sky.

I hope you like my little project which was really easy to make.  I gave this as a little extra Xmas gift to a fellow crafter so she can put in her own strip whenever she wants to replace or refresh it.

 Here's a closer view of the critters:
