When I first saw the challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog, I was a little stuped at first. The theme was Let's Go Wild! I knew that I could use something like flowers or animals, but I really wanted to push it a little further. That's when I found the "Wild" story stamp set by Ali Edwards in my stash from when you could test her monthly set for free ($5 shipping). Well, frankly, I think that the $20 price tag on her 4x6 stamp set is waaaaaaaaay too high, but the Wild stamp set is gorgeous! Of course, it's mostly relevant for scrapbooking, but there was this script-y wild in there that I thought was perfect, so I combined it with Hero Art's Operation Write Home Missing You stamp set to finish my sentiment. So now it says "wild about you". I also used the moose from the same set.
As you can see from the picture, I also went "Wild" with the colors, and gave my moose pink antlers using my ZIG markers. I also used one of my favourite techniques, which is to color on velum paper. It's nice because it gives you a pop of colors, but you can still see through to the background. I wanted to give the card some texture, so I clear embossed "wild" over the black ink I had already stamped. I also stamped the sentiment in the background of the white cardstock, but you an't actually see it... A bit of a waste, really! The cool blue die cut was cut from one of the dies that came in Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval box. The ast box was absolutely amazing!
