God morgen! Her har det vært kort- og bloggetørke en stund, men nå stikker jeg i hvert fall innom med et kort med den nye Whimsy-sjiraffen! Kul typ?! Dette kortet hadde verken mål eller mening da jeg begynte å fargelegge den langhalsede, men blikket gjorde at det ble som det ble :)
Good morning! After some time off from cards, papers and blogs I've finally managed to create something... Here's a DT card I've made with the new Whimsy giraffe! Isn't he (or is it her?) cool?! I had no plans with this card as I started painting, but the thoughtful look in his eyes made it a thank you card :)Here's what I did to create this image:
I started with stamping, painting and masking the giraffe (he's painted with Distress Ink 'tea dye' and 'walnut stain'). Then I sponged the aqua paper with Distress Ink 'broken china'. To create the background tree I used a Tattered Angels stencil (from the Blossom Glimmer Screens). I sprayed Glimmer Mist 'walnut gold' at the stencil and "stamped" the tree. You can find this and many other tips at the Tattered Angels web site :) Finally I stamped some grass and flowers using a SU stamp and three different colours of green Fluid Chalk.
To mirror reverse the the giraffe head I stamped it on a left over piece of rubber before stamping it on aqua paper. It didn't get perfect, but at this little image I just drawed the lines with a filt pen after colouring :)
The sentiment is a ticket from Melissa Frances ticket book.Da skal jeg ut og jobbe litt - håper dere alle får en finfin dag!
I wish you all a lovely day - take care!
