Atc - "Wild animals"

TMTA has got a challenge this week that is all about wild animals. I am the few lucky ones that have actually seen a lot of wild animals from the time we lived in Africa, animals that others have to see in a zoo. I always feel so unhappy when I am seeing animals kept behind bars and this atc is all about that.
The background is from an old book about animals, distressed and stampet with a cracklestamp and with swirls from Stempelglede. The butterfly and text is from Lisas Altered Art. The bars are rubbed with metal paste to get them to look less like a strip of paper. And there are tiny brads that holds the bars together.
The eyes of the lepard is yellow "diamonds" and it is diamond glaze on the bodypart of the butterfly.

TMTA har også denne uken en flott utfordring, og denne gangen handler det om ville dyr. Jeg visste med en gang hva jeg ville lage, det betyr imidlertid ikke at det er så lett likevel... Jeg er en av de heldige som har fått oppleve Afrikas ville dyr i mangfold da vi bodde der nede mens resten er avhengig av å se dem bak lås og slå. Jeg føler meg alltid så trist når jeg ser dyr bak jerngitre og denne atc'en viser vel tydelig hva jeg mener om dette.

Bakgrunnen er fra en gammel loppemarked bok om dyr, den er distressed og stemplet med et cracklestempel (for et "norsk" ord da gitt...) og swirlestempel (enda verre!!!) fra Stempelglede.

Sommerfuglen og teksten er fra Lisas Altered Art. Det er små gule diamanter i øynene på leoparden og diamond glaze på kroppen til sommerfuglen. Det er bittesmå brads som holder gitteret sammen.

  8. What a beautiful work of art, Tonje! I hate it that the animals are caged up too, but I would never have gotten to see what a tiger or giraffe looks and smells like if it weren't for zoos. You've done a fantastic job with the gorgeous eyes and background and butterfly sparkles.

  12. En nydelig og trist ATC. Jeg må si meg enig i hvor feil det blir å holde disse fantastiske dyrene i fangenskap! Du får kontrasten til friheten frem helt supert med den nydelige sommerfuglen!
