Happy Birthday To A Kindred Spirit

Hello crafters!  I think this is the last zebra card to share with you.  I started by embossing the Pebble Rush embossing folder.  I used the Opulent Olive and Sky Blue Matt Chalk Polish across the top of the embossed design.  Next I stamped the Zebra stamp in black and cut it out with the matching Zebra die.  I coloured the image with Distress Markers (Tumbled Glass, Antique Linen and Weathered Wood).  I added a piece of white vellum to the back of the zebra frame, then attached it to the background.  I stamped the sentiment and tag from the Wild About You Cleear stamp set and cut it out with the matching die from the Safari Tags die set.  I tied a piece of jute around the background, then added the tag across it.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful. Isn't it amazing to think every single zebra has a different stripe pattern equivalent to our finger print. Sue, your artwork is amazing, no wonder your die and stamp designs are spot on. Beautiful sample today.
Love and big virtual hugs to all that pass by this Saturday/Sunday xxx

Good Morning Sue and all..
What a lovely way to start the day.
For me Sue, all of these gorgeous animals bring back wonderful and sometimes sad memories of bygone days. I went to South Africa every 2 years when 3 of my children lived out there. My last trip was in 2003 to the funeral of my youngest Son (44) after a road accident.
I enjoy all of your beautiful cards Sue and some of them are so lifelike it's quite uncanny. You most certainly have a gift.
Have a good weekend.
Marie P.

Hi Sue, I have belatedly left a comment on yesterday's post and am making sure I leave one on time today. Gorgeous card and your lovely zebra has such a serene look about him it is hard not to be drawn to him. Your light touch with colouring just suits it perfectly.
