WILD Wednesday!



It's been a wild Wednesday here in the studio and I am only just getting round to sharing some new WILD makes. This graphic I made inspired me to dust off the WILD clear stamp set, the Stencil - Zebra Print and some other wild products. So much so, I made a trio of cards to share with you.

First up is this super simple one layer card.

I've been wanting to practice softer inking and I thought today was the perfect opportunity to do so using the Stencil - Zebra Print. I rather like how this turned out. It isn't perfect and a little patchy in places, but I really like the effect. I used Distress Oxide Black Soot ink.

I then stamped the WILD sentiment & accompanying sentiments in black ink over the top. Super fun and any of the Uniko animal print stencils would work with this design. 

This lead onto my second card today. With creating something with maybe a more masculine feel above, I wanted to make something a little more feminine and also wanted to dust off Paradise and Paradise Leaves clear stamp sets! 

I feel like I have totally neglected these fun stamps, which is so easy to do when there are always new goodies coming out - haha! 

Anyway. I started by stamping a bunch of leaves and hibiscus flowers using Concord & 9th inks. I then played about to get a little cluster of leaves with the flower with enough room to fit the WILD sentiment. 

I think deciding on the layout and the accompanying sentiment which is from Festive Sentiments Outlined took the longest. Even longer than all the fussy cutting! 

For my final card today I felt I couldn't leave Bob the Toucan out. After all he does look down on me at my desk! 

This time I paired him up with the Large Background Tropical Paradise, which is partially stamped. I also used my stamping tool for this to ensure I could repeat stamp a couple of times to get good coverage.

I created a little sentiment perch for Bob, with the HAPPY sentiment, also from Festive Sentiments Outlined. This time I heat embossed the sentiment in white. I finished the design off with another Hibiscus flower and leaves from the Paradise clear stamp set. 

That's all I have to share with you today, I hope you have enjoyed this WILD post and I don't think it'll be too long before you're seeing more of these products 😉 

Thanks for stopping by.
