It's Going To Be Wild at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this month!!!!!!

Good morning!

It's a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month the new theme is Sandras' choice of "Let's Go Wild!".

I chose to follow this theme with an African night sky and bring in the wild theme as the wild animals in the wild - loved it!

You will notice the fabulous gentle sparkle that is on this card, that's because it started life with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens.  I have blended the sparkle pens down the page blending from a blue, to a purple to an orange and then back out at the bottom with a brown.

I then popped on a horizon with some distress ink and a piece of paper and then lifted out the colour for the moon with water and a paper towel.

The animals were stamped on (all Inkylicious) and highlighted with a white pen to show a reflection of that big moon on them. The Foliage at the front is a stamp by Graphic 45 and the stencil work at the top is a Sheena Douglass stencil.

Popped this on for you, to show you the lovely sparkle that is there from the sparkle pens.

Mat and layered in black and white.

I do hope that this has given you some inspiration to have a go at our new challenge this month.  PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ARE A STAMPING CHALLENGE AND THAT THE MAIN FOCUS ON YOUR ARTWORK MUST BE A STAMPED IMAGE - NO DIGITAL IMAGES PLEASE.

Come on folks - "Let's go Wild"!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. This is superb Leanne and I really like how you've opted for an evening scene. Your animals are highlighted perfectly by the moonlit night with just that small touch of highlighter and the whole scene if framed beautifully with the stencil at the top, I love it! Crafty hugs, Sandra x

  2. You have achieved such depth of your Leanne and it draws you right into the lovely scene, great card.
