Out of Africa


365 Cards Day 209 - It's a Jungle Out There
I had something in mind for this and did the best to try and put my idea onto card.
Paper - Basic Grey
Stamp - 'Africa' by Stampabilities
Grass and Leaves stamp - Clarity Stamps
Vine Stamp - Clarity Stamps
Sentiment Corner Stamp - Clarity Stamps...I think you will gather I love these
Inks - Adirondack 'Pesto' & 'Lettuce', Versafine Onyx Black
Base card from my stash

I wanted to play about with a direct to paper technique and masking to make bushes with my grass stamps and to have the zebra looking out....I sort of got there, but it was a bit laborious to cut the masks around the blades of grass and leaves.
It was hard to think how to put a sentiment on there, not sure I chose right
It's not a bad effort, even though I say so myself.
