I love this tiger stamp (Embossing Arts) and haven't used it for quite some time, but it is perfect when I need a birthday card for a boy. It was stamped and embossed in black on white cardstock. The tiger was colored with chalk pastels and the green around the edges is Distress ink crushed olive and forest moss. To get more depth on the tiger I colored a layer with chalks, sprayed it with workable fixative, added more chalk and sprayed again. This can be done a few times until you like what you have.
