Safari Friends: Wild Side by Miriam

Hello friends, It’s great to have you stop by my little card corner once again, thank you!! Today I am delighted to be here with a card using digital stamps from the the new release from RAM Stamps. This is such a fun release, perfect for all occasions and great for cards for boys – which can be a bit tricky sometimes. So let’s get started on the card……

I started off with all the panels and card base. Firstly I created a card base from Neenah 110lb cardstock to measure 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I then die cut two additional panels in Neenah 80lb cardstock, one smaller than the other and one using the Tiny Check Brights paper from My Favorite Things.

On the smallest panel I ink blended a purple sky using Spun Sugar and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks. The ink was darker at the top and faded to white towards the middle of the panel. From the bottom of the panel I ink blended Mowed Lawn and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink, again fading the colour to the middle. I splattered the purple area with white gouache and purple liquid watercolour paint. The green area was splattered with clear water. I set the panel aside to dry whilst I worked on the images.

I printed the Wild Side digital stamp along with some butterflies from the You Are Beautiful digital stamp using Canon Pixma printer. I coloured the images with Copic markers and added white gel pen highlights once they were dry. I then fussy cut the images. I used the following Copic combinations –

W6, W4, W2, W0, W00, R85, R83, R83, BV13, E44, E43, E42, E41, R30.

I stamped the sentiment using Grapesicle ink from My Favorite Things and glued all the panels to the card base and the added the elephant and butterfly images to the card using foam tape.

I hop you love this card as much as I do and it may inspire you to get crafty sometime soon. Don’t forget to head over to the RAM Stamps online store and check out this gorgeous new release.
