Sunset and zebras

Today I am back on the Country View Challenge blog with another inspiration make. The theme is "Animal Magic" chosen by  Corrie.

Like my previous make for the challenge, I have gone for a CAS design and a realistic look, but, the brayered background gives a totally different feel.

I stamped and masked the zebras (Imagination Crafts Art stamp) on glossy card,  and brayered some dye inks for the sky and water.
I added the sentiment (Creative Stamping issue 57) embossed in white.

Again a simple creation where stamping takes the center stage.

Over to you now to create something with an animal, real or fantasy, and join us in our April challenge for the chance to win a £ 20 voucher!

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Unikostudio, Craft Stamper TIMI, Penny Black and more challenges.

  2. Fab stamp Christine - and a great background! Lovely card.

  3. Just fabulous - those vivid colours, beautifully blended in the background to capture the African skies and then the monochrome zebras (well, they would be, I suppose!) in the foreground - what a great stamp. Great CAS work.
