In The Eye Of The Tiger

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to Larisa.  Woo hoo number 100.  Should we celebrate??  Well, actually I realise that I probably do have a few more than 100 followers but since I haven't really worked out how to work out who's on bloglovin' or email I'm just really looking at my google friends connect folks.  But I love you all and appreciate your support.  Hugz   

Well, I had great fun with the cut away embossing technique, and the tiger that didn't get into the last project has been staring at me all afternoon so I figure I'd better play again.  

What a gorgeous kitty!  I used a sizzix embossing folder on some bronze card.  I love this cos it's got a black core and I sanded in places to expose that.  I used a zig zaggy border punch and adhered to a brown card base.  The tiger was stamped on Prima patterned paper, embossed and fussy cut.  The sentiment, from the same Marks Finest Paper Tiger set was stamped and embossed with weathered wood powder.  But we didn't like that so we stamped again and used black embossing powder.  Not bad, and I like the little highlight.  A few black sequins and Tiger is a happy kitty.
