My first project for Big Cats is a chipboard calendar made following the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.
I used some coasters I found in the clearance bin at Michaels right after Christmas -- eight coasters for a dime! I covered the coasters with some DP from a DCWV Photo Stack -- grass. Using my Bind-It-All I connected the two coasters and added the lion image and the calendar.
I must confess that this tiger card is my favorite project of the month. He is stamped on MFP White Storm 100 lb. cardstock. Because he is a white tiger, there is very little coloring -- some gray shading, the pink nose, and the blue eyes -- all with Copic markers.
I matted him on black and glued him to the cardbase. Then I used a square nestie and embossed the frame around the black square. The final touch was the sentiment.
Be sure to visit the rest of the DT blogs to see what they have created with this "wild" set.
