Hi everyone. I made this card for our son whose birthday was actually yesterday, and as I had just bought this new Creative Stamper Magazine and the stamps had some fun images of a zebra, giraffe, lions and a cheetah as well as some other coordinated images including these leaves, I thought that one of these would make a nice masculine card, so in the end I opted for the giraffe which together with the zebra are images by Crafty Individuals included as part of the set this time.
On looking through the magazine I saw that one of the designs was a CAS card and I liked the look of the giraffe peering out from the leaves. I stamped the leaf below it first then masked it before stamping the giraffe and then masked that before adding the other leaves surrounding it using some Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. I then coloured it using a set of brush pens by Staedler scribbling with them on my glass mat and picking up the colour using a waterbrush. I also added some softly blended inks around the giraffe using some yellow behind its head and some blue around that, and then finished with the sentiment again stamped with the Vintage Sepia and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
I sent the card to Australia three weeks ago thinking that should be more than enough time, but by the weekend it still hadn't arrived, but luckily yesterday it turned up...phew! Thank you for dropping by today and I hope to see you again soon.
