Exotic......

Hello There......
Today's card is a CAS fun card.
The giraffe has been stamped and then masked so I could use a stencil 
and blending with distress inks.
I thought the stencil from Stamplorations looked like a Giraffe.
The edges have been heat embossed with gold and copper.
I finished off with lightly colouring the Giraffe and stamping the sentiment.
Some smudgy bits but I guess that the Giraffe won't mind!
Thanks for stopping by....

  2. This is fantastic. You'll laugh at this one Mac, I haven't got my glasses on and I looked at this when it popped up on my posts and thought.....Mac's stamped a Pineapple. I'm pleased to say that I've now had a closer look and can see that it's clearly not! I love this one. Giraffes are one of my favourite animals and I once got to feed one at South Lakes Zoo, which was an amazing experience. Your colouring is amazing and the stamp works just perfectly with the stencil. Have a great weekend. Sandra :) x
