Africa : Wild about you !

 Hi there!

Things are a bit quiet in my craft room and therefore on the blog too... but there's a good reason for that! Our oldest daughter is visiting from Cape Town and we are making the most of our time together!

But... when I saw the cue card at CASology this week, I knew I had to take some time out to play along. I am a child of Africa and will always be ! So this morning while she was still asleep, I got up to make a card. Or actually two. One the result of the other as it so often happens 😊. I will share the other in a separate post because I want to link them both to the challenge.

First up the secondary card :

Hero arts : Safari Wild about you

Hero arts : Safari Wild about you

Hero arts : Safari Wild about you

 I used :

  • Safari-wild-about-you stamp set by Hero Arts
  • Rustic-linen stamp set by Altenew (adding texture)
  • Distress oxide inks
  • Africa stencil cut with my Silhouette cameo
  • Versafine black ink
  • Misti

Sharing my card at :

Thanks for visiting me today!

Oh my gosh, this is amazing! Love, love, love the continent masking - gorgeous ombre background (love the added texture at the top) and the tree breaking the box! Thanks for joining us at CASology!

How could you ever have a more perfect stamp set? It's ideal with the African continent as a background. I'm blown away. Such a beautiful card. I'm happy for you spending time with your daughter, Hannelie!

An amazing card!
Love that you used the shape of Africa to create this scene. Had been looking for something like that myself as I am a huge Africa lover - didn't think about making my own stencil yet, so thatnks for giving me the idea.
Looking forward to seeing the other card you've made.
