'P' is for Panther

The sixth letter in the The Craft Barn alpha challenge is 'P'.  Now I've come to realise over the last couple of challenges that my small cheap dictionary is not very comprehensive meaning that I couldn't do my original choices of Punum or Pin-up.  In the end I've decided to use my newly arrived Bombshell panther stamp.

As with the previous challenges, I started with the 6x7 inch white card stock base and punched the 2 holes on the correct side for it to be added to my book.   I glued the dictionary page and stamped the Panther then doodled around the word and definition plus around the edge of the page and again around the dictionary page.  Next I covered the word and definition and then spritzed the page with a number of Dylusions inks plus water for achieve the background. Once dry I edged the page with Tim Holtz black soot distress ink and added picket fence to the image and the doodling and added some splatz to the page.  Next I covered the word with Tim Holtz rock candy crackle paint and the panther with Ranger glossy accents and added a line to the end of each claw.  Finally and as usual I added the appropriate Tim Holtz alphabet letter and stamped my chosen word onto black card stock.
Thanks for looking!
