I'm holding a "Name the Tigers" contest for this image I did for Squigglefly! The winner will get this card plus the digital image which is currently called "Tiger Friends" (sorry, no substitutes!) Just think of two names that you might find fitting for this pair of tigers and let me know in your comment below. You can try as many times as you like! I'll leave it open until Saturday April 10th!
I coloured the tigers with the following Copics:
Stripes: C3, 6, 9, and 10
E95, 97, 99 and then Y38 all over that
E19 on their noses
W3 and 4 for shadows in white areas
The jungle leaves are my old High Hopes design that I stamped, cut out, and painted with water colours. Then I beefed up the colour using G40 and 82 and YG67
It's funny how I now find it hard to leave a water colour as is; after using Copics so much, I feel water colours look too dull and washed out by comparison. hmmmmmm
I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder twice to do the green panel, and sanded it with rough sand paper to show the white core. The stitches are fake (well obviously). I used the Scor Pal with the little hole making tool and then painted the stitches on with Copic White paint (love that stuff!).
I've used Large Oval and Floral Accent dies from Spellbinders, and sponged on the ink colours while they were still in the dies.
I used two layers of foam tape on the tigers and one layer of foam tape on the oval to pop them up.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I hope you have a blessed day filled with the knowledge that you are loved by God! He lovingly watches over you!
