Giraffes, Zebras & Tigers....Oh, My!
I created my background using a technique called Bleach Blocking. It creates a colorful and texture rich background. You can find the details of this technique in the December 2014 edition of the TJ Newsletter. If you are not already a Junkie, you can find details for ordering back issues HERE.
To complete my project, I used this awesome TRIO stamp from I Brake For Stamps! I stamped on cream colored card stock using Archival Ink. This is the best permanent/waterproof ink I own! It gives such a crisp image that is plenty black. The only downside, I can see, is that it doesn't work with my Copic markers. But, nevermind that. There are plenty of other ways to apply color! Lately, I've been getting into water coloring a bit more. I'm so trendy....LOL!! Actually, I'm rutty (although that doesn't sound very attractive!) I am currently in my water color rut. I'll be here for awhile and you'll see nothing but water colored projects.....bear with this creature of habit!
For this card, I used the same distress inks I used on my background and my aqua painter. I wanted just a shadow of the light purple color (dusty concord) around each animal.....The giraffe and tiger both are colored with Rusty Hinge in varying intensity.
To finish it off, I added the "Enjoy" sentiment from Floral Half Sheet 148B. So many good choices on that sheet! When you go over to the I Brake For Stamps store, you'll want to check out everything I linked to. Also, how cute is this Cute Elephant? Can anyone say...Horton Hears a Whoo???? Be sure to visit the clearance section too....cuz, who doesn't like a deal? And, speaking of dealios....you can save with my coupon code SAVE10JANE--get after it!
That's all for me today----have a great one!! Don't forget to be awesome!
