Bring on the Oranges

Hello.  Welcome.  Decided to try a new background technique inspired by MFP.  They want to see the Citrus Bag background.  OK, never heard of this, so I followed the tutorial and made a birthday card featuring that gorgeous tiger

So cool.  I used Tea Dye and Ripe Persimmon distress ink for the background and stamped MFP Tiger straight onto the card.  Then I filled in the tiger with a bit more Ripe Persimmon to give him a bit more depth.  Maybe should have stamped him elsewhere and fussy cut but I quite like the background texture showing through.  The sentiment is from the same MFP set.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
