I Brake for Wolves

While perusing the large selection of stamps at I Brake for Stamps, I came across Large Wolf with Moon and decided that he'd be the perfect image for many different projects, especially those difficult cards for the men in one's life. I should mention that this stamp is also available in a smaller size too.

Large Wolf with Moon was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Craft) and colored with Copics. When it came time to die-cut around the image, I realized that I had messed up the orientation of the stamp and the image was askew. Rather than binning the project, I fussy-cut the image and edged it with a Black Pitt Artist pen (Faber Castell).

I used one of the dies from the Rounded Tag Framelit die set (Sizzix) to die-cut a piece of patterned black paper from the Cartographer 6x6 pad (Prima). The next largest die from the set was used to die-cut star-patterned paper from the Beachside Pint Size Patterns 6x6 pad (lawn fawn). The edges of both die-cuts were lightly distressed and layered atop the remaining black patterned paper. The piece was trimmed and the edges lightly distressed. Large Wolf with Moon was adhered onto the die-cut and the card front was adhered to a kraft card.

I did not add a sentiment yet because the recipient and occasion have yet to be decided.
