I've been playing with the Artsy Tribal Doodles stamp club set again. This time, I wanted to make my own tribal patterned paper so that I could die cut some giraffe and elephant shapes using Deepti's Tweet Love dies.
I can't stamp in a straight line to save my life, but it didn't matter because I was die cutting shapes from it.
Once the sheet was stamped, I filled in some of the gaps with the small dot stamp, then die cut my shapes.
On to the background. I sponged Distress Inks across a panel of white card, splashed with water then stamped the leaves (from Trendy Leaves). I used the new Stitched Snow Hills die to cut a hill from green card, stamped the sentiment (from The Bee's Knees Birds of Paradise), then attached it to my sponged panel.
