Woodware UK: The Great Outdoors (Mind You, A Moose-bite Can Be Nasty!)

Sorry. I just could not resist the added funny. If you can name the movie that quote came from, add it to your comment below!

The Woodware UK team are playing in the Great Outdoors this week, and to me nothing says great outdoors more than a moose. They're just so huge and funny looking. My moose looks a bit wrinkled, don't you think?

I took a panel of ivory cardstock and machine-embossed the Dreamweaver Moose. Then I took a dauber and several colors from a Splendor inkpad, and brushed over the surface. I spritzed the entire panel with water, and crumpled it in my hand, and then opened it out flat again. When dry, I brushed more inks over the surface to catch the folds and wrinkles. A little black ink for distressing and a torn edge finished the panel. The kraft card base was ink-distressed as well in brown ink, and softly stamped with the Jeans Pocket image randomly. I wrapped some black hemp cord around the card for added texture.

What a cool card!! Love the antique-y look to it! Besides... moose are just cool animals. Hmmmm... not sure of the movie line, but it made me think of the movie "Great Outdoors" with John Candy and Dan Akroyd. But their animals were a bald bear and those racoons. LOL
