This week I received Sheena Douglas's new stamp set and they really got my juices going. Then I read on the Simon Says Stamp challenge that it was about using big stamps and decided to start playing.
The other thing I wanted to use was my new gelatos that I bought from ally pally. So i stamped the indian arches on the matte side of centura pearl and embossed in ivory. I then shaded it in with gelatoe using my fingers to apply and blend. They are yummy and now i want more colours.....
Getting back to the card.....
I stamped the tiger in versamark and embossed in black and coloured him in with gelatos and fingers again. He is one amazing tiger....so detailed. I fussy cut him and feathered around tail and cheek/whisker areas.
Then i stamped some leaves all around edges with fern and olive archival inks. I stamped and clear embossed more leaves using same inks. Then came the laborious task of fussy cutting. I must confess I lost the will to live.
I layered them over the stamped images to give impression of lush vegetation.
I stamped the sentiment in versamark and embossed in detail black. I die cut it with a spellbinders tag die and coloured it with gelatos while still in die. I cut another piece in black and offset it at the back creating a shadow.
I assembled the card and matted and layered on black, orange and black and stuck to craft card base card. I stamped some images from same set in versamark creating a watermark effect on the side.
And viola'. I finally finished it. I hpe you like my offering. i sure did enjoy making it ( bar leaves). Theresa xx
