This card is for the sketch challenge
on the Michael Strong Stamp group.
This is the sketch and as you can see
for the card it is turned around.
To start the background I used a stencil and
vintage photo and fossilized amber distress ink.
Here you see the finished back panel.
For the next oiece i used the acacia leave.
But as I did not want the border to show,
so I colored the leave with a distress marker.
I used several kinds of green to fill out the paper.
On the card i used the giraffe stamp by Michael Strong.
You find the stamp here.
I stamped the giraffe with brown archival ink and
colored with the same to inks as i used for the background.
Just added some ink on my craftsheet, sprayed a little
water and used a brush for coloring. The birthday sentiment
is also by Michael Strong and comes from the words
and phrases set.
I also decorated the giraffe with little yellow sticky gemstones.
The green panel behind the giraffe is also embossed.
Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
