Memory of Africa

We recently went on a cruise which ended in South Africa and we have lots of fabulous memories of our time spent in Africa.
This card for the challenge at Happy Little Stampers is a reminder of that fabulous vacation.
I made a circle aperture mask and brushed it with various shades of Distress Inks before stamping the Tim Holtz silhouette tree using black dye ink.The sentiment is from an old wooden stamp from Sir Stampalot. I distressed the edges of the sentiment card with scissors before mounting on foam pads. 

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.
Our summer has been really busy looking after grandchildren, which was great fun but extremely tiring... maybe soon things will get back to normality!


  1. Such beautiful blending, Chrissie ... it wonderfully captures the colour (and heat!) of the African bush ... the silhouette is fabulous against it! Anita :)

  2. What a sweet card for Phil to remind him of your adventure together, Chrissie! Your blending is flawless behind that great tree silhouette! Love that you are also making wonderful memories for your grands this summer!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. I really like how you stamped the tress of the edge and gorgeous background sky x

  4. WOW! Gorgeous exotic take on the silhouette theme Chrissie - Simple CAS brilliance, awesome blending and fantastic images. Hope all well with you x

  5. WOW! Such a magnificent tree silhouette. The background for her is amazing. I love all the discrete shadows you received by mixing colors. I love this card.

  6. This is gorgeous, Chrissie, and it reminds me of other pictures I've seen of Africa. How great that you were able to take such a fabulous trip.

  7. wow, the perfect card to remember your holiday by. Did you do a safari tour while there? That's what your card reminds me of. Love it! xx

    1. We did do a safari Kylie, but it was in a game reserve rather than in the wild!

  8. Sorry I'm so late visiting this one, Chrissie! But what a stunner. That ink blend is perfect for this theme, such a beautiful scene x
