Wild Cards

Hi, here are a couple of cards I made with some digi stamps that caught my eye from Stamp n Doodle, a digi stamp site that has a lovely range of wild animal images, amongst others.
I was pleased with how the images were coloured with promarkers, and because of the detail of the image not a huge amount of colour was necessarily needed to bring the stamp to life. The colours of the card around the zebra I hope you will agree, sets the whole African safari feel, at either sunrise or sunset.
To get the soft blend of safari plain colours in the background of each card I used alcohol inks with blending solution and a gold mixative, to add a subtle sheen.

 These cards are perfect as mens cards, but I would happily give and receive these to and from anyone who enjoys wild animals and nature.

This was the perfect opportunity for me to also road test my new cricut cartridge, Rosettes and Ribbons. I cut to different sized rosettes and stacked them om top of each other to make the embellishment in a co-ordinating paper.

Thanks for taking to look through my pictures.
