Easy, Tiger!

I wanted to take part in Less is More’s one layer card challenge as it’s always very challenging! It took me a while to come up with an idea for the ‘stripes’ theme, but when I did, the thing that took longest was looking for the UM tiger stamp! (I’m not very organised.)

I stamped the tiger using Kaleidacolor ‘Capuccino Delight’ , them masked it and stamped over it with a Hero Arts stamp called Holiday Stripes. I quite like the patchy effect at the top, hoping it looks like a sunset!

What I particularly liked about making this card is using old stuff that I’d almost forgotten about. Everything I used (apart form the card) is well over 5 years old.

This is simply super Marina, it's amazing how many people mention that they dig out stash that has been almost forgotten to use for lots of our challenges.
The tiger looks really handsome.
Thanks so much
