At Peace

This month’s progressive freebie challenge at Deedee’s Digi Stamps is a lovely set of images featuring tigers and sentiments based on friendship. I have decided to go with the more traditional look to my tigers!

Materials used:
Deedee’s Digis – Forever Friends
Sheena Douglas – India sets
Spectrum Noir Pens
Watercolour paper
Stamping card
Black card
Brown card
A5 white card blank
Clarity Stamps Moon Mask
Woodgrain embossing folder
Black archival ink pad

I printed out my image onto the stamping card and coloured it in with the Spectrum Noir pens before cutting it out. I used the brushos, watercolour paper and moon mask to create the background. I used the brown card in the embossing folder to make the log for the tigers to sit on. Using the Stamp-a-majig tool I positioned and stamped the sentiment onto the painted background. I layered this onto black card and then onto the card base leaving a border around each time. I used 3d glue gel to attach the log at the bottom of the card and then attached my tigers to make them look as if they were sitting on the log, gazing at the sunset.

I have a confession, I painted the background three times and finally quit! I could not get it exactly as I pictured it in my mind and each of the three attempts had different problems. However having settled on going with the third one it is growing on me!

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Finally got round to downloading this cute digi, but not had time to use it yet. Your background is splendid! I’m loving the sunset look with these Tiger pals perched on the wood fence. Not sure what your expectations of the background were originally, but it sure turned out very well I think! Looks like a lovely sunset sky that these critters were enjoying together. Hope things are proceeding very well. Hugs & TFS
