One layer African Animals

Hello Everyone,

I hope all of you had a fantastic weekend! For me, it was some work and then Sunday was a day full of crafting. This gave me an opportunity to craft three cards! Three cards with Africa in mind. I never knew I had so many stamps that could relate to Africa. The challenges I used were mostly CASology and Freshly Made Sketches. However, for this card, I will also be entering The Male Room. Well here is the first of three cards for today, enjoy!


I wanted to put some cool colors on this card but when I think of the African savannah I think warm colors. So I did a Google search and found the inspiration for my card. I really love the separation of warm and cool colors. Below you will find all the Distress Inks I used to create the landscape.

First, I stamped the lion (retired SU), I masked the lion then stamped the giraffe from the same set. I masked the giraffe and then sponged the landscape. I lastly stamped the geometric pattern. All the masking created a multidimensional one layer card.
At first, I was going to color the animals but then I took the masking off and thought to leave it alone. It looks so nice just stamped. You will find the geometric stamp in all three cards.

These are the set of cards I made with an African theme.

Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.

I LOVE your background colors! They are so striking tiogether and the animals looks so cool non colored on top of that background. Very good design choice, I think. Thank you so much for joining us at The Male Room Challenge.
