Stampin' For The Weekend No 13

Stampin' For the Weekend Challenge No 13 have  a theme which this week is "Paws for Thought" (Animals... Cats.... Dogs... Anything with 4 legs!!!), so I thought I'd use this cute digital image of a Giraffe. OK so a giraffe doesn't have paws but they DO have 4 legs! I love the colours of this card. When I stamped the giraffe, before colouring the giraffe itself, I used a make up sponge, and got sky blue promarker and daubed the end of the sponge with ink, then made a blue mottled background effect to replicate the sky with wispy clouds, and then I coloured in the giraffe and tree approriately.

Though I've added a few gems to the corners to take the plainness out of the paper, I have tried to keep this card simple as it is intended for a child. 

Thank you for viewing my card!

  9. Just an update on this, as yet I STILL haven't received my prize for this. So I'm pretty peed off to say the least :(
    To be honest, it's put me off crafting for a while.
