Hi there! Rachel Greig here today with two cards and a video using the Wild Africa Vol 2 Rubber Stamp Set! I love the two images in this set, with the bold and brave lion and the majestic cheetah sitting up there on his perch. I vividly remember watching this cheetah in the wild and watching how graceful and yet commanding he was in the way he walked, stretched and lay on the grass. What an amazing creature!
Here are two cards using this set:
1. Stamp lion image onto gloss cardstock using Archival Jet Black ink pad.
2. Swipe Antique Linen Distress Marker onto a non-stick craft sheet. Pick up some of the ink using a waterbrush and start colouring in the body of the lion. Continue to colour the rest of the lion using Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey Distress Markers. Colour the ground in the same way.
3. Sponge Antique Linen Distress Ink around the lion with an ink blending tool to create a glow. Sponge Rusty Hinge onto the ground.
4. Adhere stamped panel to black cardstock. Wrap twine around bottom of image and tie at the front. Adhere to folded kraft card.
Here is a card with the cheetah, made in a similar way to the lion card:
