Bengal Tigers scene

20180618_190904

Hi there. This card you see here took me absolutely ages to put together. There must be easier ways of creating a scene than the process I went through. I have making this for a couple of days as I didn’t know quite how I was going to place the grassy die cuts, nor where I was going to place the tigers. I must have moved them around half a dozen times, walked away to think about it, went back to it…….it’s easier going to work!

These Bengal Tigers from Hero Arts were the easiest part of the card, even the fact I had to fussy-cut them as I don’t have the matching dies. I did stamp them in a couple of colours, bit preferred these colours the best.

I took the blue background card and embossed clouds onto it, as that much blank blue looked too much, and I didn’t want to start ink blending as I liked this lighter blue. The clouds were added from The Ton Golf Course stamps and dies, just for a little more dimension up there.

I don;t do these layered scene cards very often – I now remember why not!! – but I will certainly have a search for tips and tricks when it comes to putting them together.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  1. I had such a giggle reading about the placing of your tigers, and how it would be easier going to work.. I know exactly the feeling of not being sure how something looks. However long it took you it was worth it. You have ended up with a fabulous scene.
    Thank you so much for sharing in our ‘wet or dry embossing’ challenge.

  4. The scene looks amazing – I’m not surprised it was difficult but well worth the effort in my opinion. I love the embossed clouds too, Thanks for joining in at City Crafter and The Library.
