For my October Spotlight project posts I thought I'd take you with me on my card creation journeys. With or without detours ;) Today's project started with this inspiration.
Hmmm, you ask? Well the first time I saw Artsy Tribal Doodles laying in front of me, I saw... ready for it ... lions' manes and snakes. I kinda figured Cornelia would do some googly eye art with them. But she didn't. So I did. Meet today's card.
Flipped it open and look what I found! Directions for making cutout chains of animals with the papers. Well...
Did all the fussy cutting and laid out my design. How convenient that there is even a bright savannah sun in that stamp set, eh? ;)
Next? Now a MISTI would have made the stamping process a breeze probably, but lined acrylic blocks are pretty great too. I decided where the zebra would go, put the stamp down over his head and TIP: laid my block down on the stamp (lining a line on the block up with the edge of my cardbase). Once inked up, I come back to the cardbase, remove the zebra and know pretty much where to stamp the triangle for the zebra's head!
