Better get your sunglasses on!!!
Isn't this giraffe the cutest little guy/girl? She's from Melanie Muenchinger's newest set, "Hip Hop Accessories". Of course this set matches perfectly with the "Just So Hippy" and "Just So Hoppy" sets - check them out at Gina K Designs.
I also made this card for Sketch Challenge 173 over at SCS - another great place to get ideas!
The base card is Pixie Pink with lots and lots of layers. And actually, the little giraffe was paired with her momma, but that didn't work out, so I had to delete momma from the scene. Don't worry, I saved her so I can use her in the future. :D
Next is Chocolate Chip then YoYo Yellow (whew - bright); I stamped the Yoyo Yellow with a small flower to match the DP on the card. Then another layer of Chocolate Chip, Yoyo Yellow, some gorgeous DP - love those spring colored flowers!
My giraffe is stamped on Whisper White, layered on Pixie Pink, layered on Chocolate Chip. This is the first time I've stamped an image and added something that falls "outside" the rectangle - YEAH for me, it's a start; can't wait to try a few more things. Now don't start laughing, but I JUST bought a Coluzzle, so it'll be a bit easier to do out of the box images moving forward...at least I think it will and from Melanie's instructions my head says "I think I can, I think I can!". LOL
I colored my little giraffe friend with copic markers, added the grass from Melanie's set and then sponged some clouds. No comment on the clouds except to say I really am blonde!!!
Thanks for stopping by; I hope you like my bright, springy card! Have a fabulous week!
PS - should I talk about our DD shaving her eyebrows? Hmmm....
