Tiger Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #96 Mid Inspiration)

Happy Friday! :o)

Today I'm sharing a mid-inspiration project for an ongoing Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #96 - Congratulations.

We have two sponsors for this challenge: KaDoodle Bug Designs and Scrap N' Dipity, so there will be double prizes! :o)


And here's my take on the challenge: masculine, CAS (clean and simple), Tiger Card.

I used an ADORABLE Kitty Bee Designs 'Ty the Tiger' digital image.

I printed the tiger on a thick watercolor paper and left him dry through the night to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored the tiger in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the tiger and colored edges with black marker.

Then I heat embossed in white a sentiment 'congratulations' on a black cardstock paper. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches 'Sentiment Sampler' stamp set.

I decided to go with same design and layout as on a card I shared here on my blog yesterday, here. Super simple, CAS as much as it can be, masculine with minimum colors and elements. :o)

I glued 2 mm thick foam squares on the sentiment stripe and glued it on a top folded white card base, glued 3 mm thick foam squares on the tiger and placed him on the card. As a finishing touch, I glued two wooden stars on the card.

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 121 m(3.5" x 4.75")
