OSA Year of the Tiger theme challenge

I still have another week before chemo starts again and my arms are not too bad to stamp with, although I'm having a little trouble applying pressure to stamp, and I can type okay now, so had some play time with the OSA Year of the Tiger theme challenge - it's the last challenge for the year. I love tigers so had to do this one! My twin daughters were born in the Year of the Tiger, one of them gets married next year in the Year of the Tiger, and my Aussie Rules football team are the Tigers and they are the only cats that I like LOL!

I had some backgrounds already done so I only had to stamp the tiger onto them and just used a really simple design for these two cards. My stamps are both from the Year of the Tiger plate by Art Neko stamps.

The background for the top card is a polished stone on glossy cardstock, the bottom card is a watercolour distress ink background.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Oh good; I'm first! Both your cards look great to celebrate Year of the Tiger Lyn. I especially love both your backgrounds. The colours you used and the results are great.

Lovely cards Lyn, I especially like the combination of the blues & greens of the second card, & though I don`t follow the "cats", I think that image is beautiful :)
I wish you all the best for the treatment, & I hope it isn`t too rough on you, hugs from Vicky :*
