oh baby it's a wild world {lawn fawn inspiration week}

It's the last day of lawn fawn inspiration week, and today we're showing off a great new background set: sharp backdrops.

it's a wild world

The arrows went for a safari feel on today's card.  I masked and stamped animals and trees from "critters on the savanna" to create a little scene at the bottom of the card.

I love how only the lion was given the 3D treatment (If you don't count the lion, this is a 1-layer card!)  After they were all colored, I masked the animals and stamped the arrow background to fill the entire card-base.  I did not mask the trees or the rock that the zebra is propped up on - that would have just been silly *grin*  I actually like the way that the arrows show through the trees - it's a cool effect!

My sentiment was stamped out using "riley's abcs" and I love how it's right-justified.  It gives the arrow background a place to shine, and is just plain fun, stacked over there on the side.  

I hope you've enjoyed my inspiration week projects!  It's been fun!

  2. Love the way you composed this card Elena! The animals look like they're having such a fun gathering, and all the arrows in the background just make me think of all the different directions they had to take to get there! Love the placement of your sentiment too, and the arrows showing through the trees too! Great work!!

  5. This looks so cool-- I can't believe it's all one layer (except for the lion, of course!) Your masking skills are amazing, Elena! And I love the arrows peeking through the trees!

  6. This is so cool! GREAT card! I especially love how the arrows show through on the trees....it adds kind of an extra layer to this card - the background, trees with arrows, animals, lion. So cool.

  13. So I read "background set" and saw your card, and thought the jungle scene must have been the background and maybe you stamped all the arrows. Holy cow, you masked that whole scene? That's incredible!! I am just amazed, Elena. What a fantastic card!
