Out of Africa

Something different for a change - I rarely do the "African" theme.
Materials: Black cardstock, copper cardstock, cream or white cardstock, lumiere copper/gold/dark green paints, domino, black stazon, black brilliance, selection of animal stamps, number stamp, A stamp and swirl stamp, buttons, copper pen
Method: Take your white/cream cardstock and using a sponge sponge on gold and copper lumiere paint. I also added a bit of dark green paint. Once you are happy leave to dry and then use black brilliance ink pad to stamp animals, paw prints, numbers,swirls and letter A. Then mount it onto black and then copper cardstock and then to cardfront as shown. Take your domino and sponge on Lumiere copper paint and allow to dry and then use Staz on to stamp leopard's face onto domino. Go around edges of domino with copper pen and attach to cardfront. Add buttons.
