I haven’t played along with a challenge for a while so I thought maybe I’d find a few to play along with this weekend. The first one to catch my eye was The Dutch Dare Card Challenge #166 which is a sketch~
I decided to use my newest Pure Innocence Giraffe Girl. I think she’s a doll. For once I made sure she’d fit in my nestabilities oval before I started, I don’t know how many times I set out to do a sketch and then choose an image too big for the circle/oval. LOL! I have to admit I had an ulterior motive for choosing this stamp…when I was doing the Basic Grey week I found the cutest giraffe/flamingo paper in the Basic Grey Sugared paper so I just “had” to pair it up with Giraffe Girl!
I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with my copics and ShinHan Art Touch Twin Markers. I also masked her and sponged some ink to add a little more depth/interest. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black also.
To finish the card I added some buttons, scrappers floss, and stickles! I also found an older Cuttlebug embossing border so I tried it out. Amazing what you find when you look around in your crafty area!
Have a great day! and for my US friends, Happy Memorial Day--remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
