All Creatures Great and Small: An African Theme

The theme for the April ATC swap in Clarity Worldwide was All Creatures Great and Small.  I decided to go with an African theme.

For the ATC, trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 2.5” x 3.5”. Add the elephant from the Wee Africa 2 stamp set in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.
Add the hippo in the same way.
Add the Ox from the same set, in a like manner.
Continue with the cheetah from Wee Africa set 1.
Finish with the meercat from set 1.
Blend Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Crackling Campfire and Festive Berries Distress inks across the ATC. Work from bottom to top and use Clarity stencil brushes.
To finish, add the teeny weenie moon from the Woodland Miniatures stamp set into the top corner in the same ink as before.
For the matching card, stamping directly onto the front of a 6” x 6” white card blank, add the Zebra stamps from the Safari Animals stamp set in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Mask up.
Spritz the same colours of Distress Oxide sprays around the image as used on the background of the ATC.
Die cut the nested squares doodle frame-its frames from black card and add the fourth largest.
To finish, add one of the Feel Good Factor words stickers.
