She Has.......

Hello.  Welcome.  I have used the MFP Tiger again.  I usually think of this as a male image but this was originally inspired by the Twofers A Girl's Best Friend challenge.  Zoe set the challenge and she mentioned that she likes cats, flying and diamonds.  What girl wouldn't like a tiger??  I am also doing a bit of an inspiration hop cos it's also got elements in common with the last post, namely Marilynn's scrabble letters and tan.  The colour, not anything to do with sunbathing.  Actually that would be right out since I have also used a moon.  Can you moonbathe?  Maybe just for crafty sisters bwahahahahahahahaha.

I was going to make a tag but I found this cardboard coaster in the tag box so I thought 'Why Not?'.  I covered it with some crinkly handmade stitched paper.  I used a chipboard moon from EyeConnects Totem Owl set and coloured it with a gold pilot marker.  I stamped MFP's Tiger on the back of some packaging, fruits of the forest yoghurt I believe.  I restamped the head and layered it on the body to give a bit more dimension.  Then I added some of the scrabble tiles I got from Marilynn.  Catitude.  Definitely a female trait.  Oh, and some clear rhinestones cos they do say diamonds are a girls best friend.  Hugz

  1. Love it! And I love the idea of moonbathing too, Jo x

  2. I'm defiantly up for moon bathing, so much cooler than sun! Reading your post I was transported back to the south coast, near Southampton there is a zoological park who have been very successful in breeding tigers. My strongest memory is of being sprayed by the then male who was giving his adolescent cubs a lesson in manners! Not sure that made him a girls best friend but her had shown himself a great Dad. Thank you for sharing with us at Twofers. XOXO

  6. Great card - love the scrabble letters sentiment and your monochromatic design! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  7. How funny that Zoe should mention the zoo near Southampton because I was just about to mention the very same zoo! The timing of your post was perfect as I've just spent half an hour cooing over Marwell Zoo's Twitter feed, where photos of their gorgeous new tiger cub triplets playing with their mummy have just been released. Your card reminds me of the proud mother tiger - gorgeous and perfect for our challenge at Twofers.

  8. Fabulous altered coaster, Gail!!! Love that tiger image with the moon!! Just perfect and absolutely fabulous. Great idea upcycling the yogurt pkging and I love the crinkly paper you used to cover the coaster. Fun and creative work, as always!!!
