In The Wild



Hello!  My card today is a bit more "artsy" than my usual cards.  I was inspired by Simon Monday Challenge to walk on the wild side.  I decided to combine Wild Animals with what I'd call wild and bright colors for a safari scene.   I pulled out a panel from my "save box" that was the result of playing with making watercolor backgrounds with Distress Inks.  I am not sure of the exact colors that I used.  I had smeared inks on an acrylic block, sprayed with water and then laid watercolor paper on the block.  You never know what the results might be.  I then used some old stamps from 3 different Mark's Finest Paper sets and stamped the images and sentiment with black ink on  the panel.  Finished with a gold card base.
