Dreamweaver Thursday: Wild and Wonderful

The Stampendous team have been traveling all over the wild world this week, posting our creations using the newly released from the "zoo" animal images. I've loved how easy it has been to mix in several Dreamweaver designs for a more uniquely wild project.

The card base was brown Core'dinations Essentials, partially machine-embossed with the Dreameaver Zebra pattern, and partially with the Leopard Spots backgrounds. Then these were sanded to reveal the design and rough things up a bit. The following layers were an orange panel machine-embossed with the Quatrafoil design, and brushed over the surface with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, and a stamped panel of Mixed Media Cardstock with the new Cling Pen Pattern Giraffe image which I'd colored and shaded with Copic Sketch Markers. The giraffe was stamped again on a sticky note, and cut out to create a mask. This was used to protect the colored image while I stamped the Cling Old World Map in Rich Cocoa twice over the panel. The edges were ink-distressed, and the panel was added to the layers. Finally, a die cut of the Dreamweaver Leafless Tree was inked and adhered, along with a die cut Leafy Branch, and a Nested Frame stamped with the Cling Better to Travel sentiment.

Grab your safari gear, and head over to those posting with the Dreamweaver Thursday lineup:

Gorgeous wild card Pam! Love the two stencil layers. I like your idea to mask the giraffe and then stamp the world background.

I love your card! It has a 3-d look to it. I almost feel like I could reach out and touch the giraffe!
This is so great. Fell in love with it when I saw it in the catty. Such a great combination of products!

Love the stamping of the map behind the giraffe. And it is amazing, it looks like the giraffe is coming off of the paper with your coloring and shading. Awesome card, I love it! Thanks for sharing.
