I've not been papercrafting at all since I last blogged and today was the first time I felt like getting something going. I first started with a huge clear out of my cafting stash. Two charity bags and one very large bin liner bag of rubbish later I was ready to make a card.
As you can see I've kept it very monochromatic, using the zebra print washi tape as my starting point. the zebra image is from a set called Zoo Review ( don't use this as often as I should) and the sentiment is from Delightful Dozen.
On these two photos you can see the zebra panel is raised to give a bit of dimension. It's not obvious but the washi tape is shiny and so there is a bit of texture interest too.
I chose Fathers' Day as my sentiment as its only just around the corner and I know some people who will be asking for Fathers' Day cards (my children and my husband!)
If you are wondering about the title of this post Marty is the zebra character in the animated film Madagascar, a family favourite here in the Van Vuren household.
Well, I'm posting this bit a little later in the day, I decided to make another card in the same style, with washi tape.
This time I used the bird from Nature Walk and the thin let dies Hello You. I used the die to create a negative for the sentiment, I lost the infill for the h though, doh!
I gave the bird a small black pearl for his beady eye
As you can see I made this card a tent fold. It's definitely a card for a guy
