Happy Birthday, Tiger
This week's Simple Salutations Challenge is to make a masculine birthday card. Yeah, I always need tons of them. The image and stamp is from November's new release from Mark's Finest Papers, Tigers. I can see this getting used alot. I admit, I had to look up images of tigers to colour it but it was super easy. I simply shaded by general area rather than necessarily having to follow lines. Interestingly I always think of tigers as orange but I coloured him in my earth tone Copics (E11, E13, E33, E34 with W1 and W3 for his main and eye areas) and I really like how it turned out. I then shaded the background and the sentiment paper with Y000 just to soften up the white paper. The part I find funny is the DP I chose. It was part of the Costco pack DH bought me and I smiled but wasn't sure what I was going to do with a lot of it. Howevery, this is the last of this particular background (of 6 sheets) and I never thought I would touch it. It just goes to show.
I may have to play again this week since I have three male December birthdays. Hope you'll join us!
