Hero Arts Safari Wild About You

To start off my card I got out a couple of pieces of watercolor paper and a couple Ken Oliver Color Burst colors. For the sunset I used an orange and a yellow. The yellow has a bit of a blue here and there which I wanted in there. I mixed it with water and painted that on and did a little sprinkling of the powder which I blended in with a brush. After that panel dried I cut out the sunset with a die.

Next came the background. I also used a couple Ken Oliver Color Burst colors. I got it watered down and blended a darker blue and a purple on watercolor paper. I am learning different ways to work with them and about different looks.

For the animals and the hunter I stamped them with Versamark, sprinkled on some copper embossing powder and heat embossed them. On the giraffe I added a bit of a yellow/gold embossing powder to add a little different color. I then die cut them out. I got the idea early on in the planning that I wanted to do the animals in copper. The bird above the tree is stamped with a copper pigment ink.

The tree is cut out of a cool looking copper paper that has some shimmer to it. I’ve had the paper quite awhile. It’s one of those “I don’t want to cut that up” pieces I have.

The sentiment comes from another safari set. I really need a bunch of thank you cards so that is the sentiment I picked.
