Get wild ...

... is the theme for A day for daisies 76 - the idea is to use an animal print. The background of my card was achieved using the 'crackle' That Special Touch mica mask with my gelli plate and acrylic paints, filling a few gaps here and there with the spectrum noir pens that were used to colour the 'A day for daisies' image called 'love my baby'.

I'm not sure how wild my card is, as I think these giraffes look quite tame and sweet. I tore round the image using a perspex template and edged with the spectrum noir. I found a sentiment that matched the colour scheme.

This is also for:
