Going wild

Hi Crafters,

I created a card today, for Anni's card challenge. There are few enough German card makers, so I really feel we should support each other. Therefore I absolutely wanted to participate in that challenge, from the moment I first saw it. And besides, I love stencils...

So here's my card:

I used a stencil with different leaves for the background and drew the tiger with my copic multiliner, so I could watercolor it with one of my inktense pencils. You can't see it on the foto, but it's popped up on foam squares.

I masked off the area for the leaves, but when I took off the washi tape I ripped the paper, so I had to trim it down and attach it to a seperate card base.

The letters of "wild" are cut out with the Tim  Holtz "Alphabetical" die from a piece of watercolored paper in the same color as the tiger. The stripes are drawn in with the copic multiliner again. I drew in a shadow with a grey copic to create a shadow effect, but I think I might do that again with a darker grey.

Have a great mother's day
