Tiger Eyes

I recently found this awesome free digi image called "Tiger Eyes" at the Stamp-n-doodle blog and I couldn't wait to make some cards with it. I love dramatic colors so I just left this super cool image without color except for the eyes. On the first card I used a Green Galore marker to color the eyes and GG card stock to mat the image. The background was embossed with the CB diamondplate embossing folder. The ribbon is a close match to Green Galore but it has polka dots, so I flipped it to the solid side in keeping with the masculine theme. The faux brads are punched from black cardstock and covered with CTMH liquid glass. The sentiment is a sticker from Stampendous. I don't think I've ever seen a tiger with green eyes, but I thought this color looked pretty neat anyway :)
These next two cards were done with SU! Crushed Curry as the accent color. For this card I used a different Cuttlebug folder (the name escapes me) and the fancy labels & word window punches. I added more faux brads to the side and a couple snippets of Crushed Curry ribbon
This is my favorite of the set - also done in crushed curry. For some reason, the polka dots worked this time, perhaps because they're smaller. I used the SU! square lattice ef and used the word window punch for the sticker sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a wonderful Sunday!
