Tiger, Tiger

I recently received a bag of purple buttons from Georgina at Scrap Whispers. When I first saw the February scrap map at Creative Craft World, I had a vision of using those buttons in a circle with the column of photos as in the sketch. Unfortunately I couldn't find a trio of suitable  photos. I shall have to  keep this in mind; I may have to have a purple photo-shoot with my daughter.

Instead I decided to pick some recent photos and make the sketch work for them. We visited Chessington World of Adventures on one of their winter Zoo Days when the rides were closed and we could concentrate on the animals. I flipped and rotated the sketch to suit two landscape photos of the tigers:

I used chalks with a mask to make my circle and rub-ons for the animal pawprints. I stamped my journalling spot and chalked that too. I had a small crisis when I ran out of black e's but I managed to ink some white ones to match. They are not as shiny, but I don't think anyone will notice (unless they read this).
