It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list. Your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation.
Today's festivities are inspired by Global Tiger Day which takes place on July 29th. Wild tiger numbers have dropped by more than 95% since the beginning of the 20th century. Tigers can be found in isolated forests and grasslands throughout Asia. Their habitat is wide ranging – from evergreen and monsoon forests, to mixed coniferous-deciduous woodlands, and mangrove swamps. There are estimated to be around 3,900 tigers in the wild.
The challenge runs from July 8th - July 18th.
I like to create a card for our challenge that goes with the theme. I had the purr-fect supplies in my stash for this. All products that I used in creating this card are from Hero Arts. I punched a circle from masking paper to ink the sun. I then masked the sun with that circle so that I could ink blend the rest of the background with various Distress Oxide Inks. I used embossing paste with the Hero Arts Tribal Shapes Stencil on Kraft card stock for some texture and interest, added that panel to the left side of my card and glued the distress ink panel to the right of it. I die cut the grass and tree with the Hero Arts Thorn Tree and Grasses Fancy Dies and glued them onto my blended panel. I then stamped and die cut my tigers using Hero Arts Color Layering Bengal Tigers. I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Safari Huge Thanks stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black and heat embossed it with clear EP. I glued the inked and stenciled panels on to a piece of black Gina K black card stock, and my card was complete.
I used tigers, stripes, orange, black & fur from the Inspo list.
