Chubby Zebra

Another zebra card. This time with the chubby Judikins zebra stamp. I love stripes and I love black and white so I guess that's why I love the look of zebras. I mean, you can never have an old fashioned zebra, they will always look contemporary with their cool colours.

I used glossy card for this and masked out the zebra while I brayered over the top. It's just a simple card because I was a bit rushed yesterday and didn't have enough time to do much more.

If you ever wondered why zebras are black and white striped I will tell you. Its so their predators can't see them very well if they are all grouped together. All those black and white stripes are confusing to spot a single zebra in so a lion would find it hard to target. Zebra is a word in Old Portuguese that means 'Wild Ass'

Ok, that's enough zebra facts :)

Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday ...

I know that no two zebras have the same stripe pattern! Learned this decades ago! Love your chubby zebra--I remember that JudiKins stamp! He matches my skinny peacock! LOL!
Have a great weekend, Liz!


Oh sweetie love this card so much, you're getting a dab hand at those brayered backgrounds. hugs xxx
