Howdy! Welcome to a new year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. They can be hectic but very nice with all the family gatherings, decorations and of course delicious food.
When I thought about a card to make I decided it would be for my brother. You know those sometimes hard to make masculine cards. So here we are with a safari theme which I think can work for a male or female.
I used the Hero Arts Tag Infinity dies to cut out, guess what, a tag. Then out came the Oxide Distress Inks. I blended 2 purples and 1 blue ink on Bristol paper.
I cut out the sunset circle using a die from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero June 2017 set and also used Bristol paper and blended Oxide inks. You can get this die by itself from Hero Arts.
For the tree and animals I blended some Black Soot Oxide Distress ink on Neenah paper and then cut them out using the dies from the My Monthly Hero kit. In real life they look like a chalky black. Note: Instead of the animal dies you could use Hero Arts Color Layering Elephant stamp set in the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store. Hero Arts also has several sets that include lot’s of fun safari animals, trees, sentiments both dies and stamps.
For the background I stamped with Quick Quotes ink using the Hero Arts Mud Cloth Bold Prints stamp.
