Animals at TioT


Hi and welcome to a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday, and this time it's 'Animals' wild or domesticated.

This was a bit of a challenge for me - I realised I didn't have any stamps or anything with animals, not even a Christmas reindeer until I saw this 'freebie' with a magazine last week.  So here goes Christmas card number 1.  The image was stamped with Versamark on navy cardstock and brushed with Perfect Pearls.  Matted onto pearlised card stock that had been embossed with a TH Snowflakes EF. This was a nightmare to photograph!
My teamies have some wonderful inspiration so please pop over to the main blog, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it.

Avril xx

It is strange how we have some gaps in our range of stamps/paint colours/whatever's & it's only when a challenge comes up that we realise what that shortage is!

Nice use of the freebie, mine remains un-inked so far...

Your image looks fab brushing with the Perfect Pearls over the versa mark. Not tried that technique so methinks must put that right.! Love the navy card which is one of my favourites to use. Hugs Mrs A.

Freebies sure can come in handy, and I think you did a lovely Christmas card. It's great to step out of the comfort zone from time to time, isn't it. Nice work!
