Woven Tiger

Hello.  Welcome.  Crafty time has been sadly lacking and I have so many thing started and not finished.  That's me folks!!  So I decided to sit down and concentrate on just one thing.  And Lo! a Tiger appears in the east.   Sorry!  It's the christmas paper.  But hopefully you won't notice that LOL.  

Over at MFP they have a lovely tutorial on weaving a card center so me and Tiger thought we'd join the fun.  My base card, woven pieces and tiger are all on Basic Grey Jovial paper.  I picked up a few pieces of this cos I thought it was lovely summer colours and liked the printed text look.  Ahhhh.... christmas carols text!  Ah well, who reads it that close.  We're going for the seasonal birthday look.  The Tiger and the sentiment are from MFP Tiger set.  I cut the sentiment using Simon Says Stamp stitched tag die and tied on a tuft of wool that maybe looks like the end of a tigers tail??  Well, artistic license at work.  My panel was embossed with Couture Creations Ohh La La embossing folder and I added some Shabby Shutters distress ink.

  6. I never would have noticed it was Christmas paper if you hadn't said anything. The plaid looks great for a masculine card. Love the tiger to the side so we can see the weaving. Thanks for sharing with us at MFP's Speedy Fox and Friends.

  7. Gail, your weaving is fabulous on this - great way to recycle and create a super bg!!! Love that tiger too. Thanks for sharing this tag with us at DRS Designs. Hope you get more crafting time too - love your creations! Hugz
