For my card this week I have used a gorgeous image from Barbara Jensen called Little Tiggy Tiger. I absolutely adore this image, it is such a cutie. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and I created a second layer so I could decoupage the head. It was rather fiddly to cut the little tufts of hair but it looks great so It was worth it J I added some crystal effects to the eyes, nose and paw pads.

The card was covered with a tiger print paper that I had from an assorted animal print pack years ago. The green paper is by Imaginisce. I had made a card for a work colleague of Pauls for Mothers Day and he was sending it to South Africa where he is from. His Mum came for a visit and brought me some animal papers and chipboards all the way from South Africa. I was really touched that she would do that for me and it was a lovely surprise.

I based my layout on a sketch from Passion for Promarkers. I have added some flowers in the top corner let hand corner with a button and twine embellishment and some die cut swirls from a new die I just had from Joanna Sheen.

The favourites in my card are fave technique which is to decoupage a digi image, obviously fave colouring medium Promarkers, fave bright colours and pretty papers and fave embellishment which is flowers.

Please pop over to OSAAT to see the fab cards from my colleagues on the DT and I hope we will see lots of entries and your favourites.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-

Card Size – A5
Image – Little Tiggy Tiger by Barbara Jensen
Paper – miscellaneous from stash and Imaginisce
Embellishments – paper flowers, button, bakers twine, crystal effects.
Tools – scissors, 3d foam, Promarkers, Crea swirls die
