Animal Magic at Simon Says Stamp

This week the theme of my favorite challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Animal Magic, so I went back in my photos of cards not blogged yet and found this beautiful tiger I created for a magazine article a while back on vellum techniques. I do not remember whose stamp the tiger scene is, but I do remember I stamped it with black ink on vellum and then colored from the other side with markers. The tiger itself was "colored" with a round styllus head to stretch the vellum and raise it as shown. I die cut an oval opening in the white card front and scored diagonally every inch both ways. I masked and did a little sponging in the bottom of the diamonds to create the cool background look. Now that I look at this card again, I wonder why I never blogged it before? I really like both the tiger scene and the background too.
