Hello crafters! I have a fun, fun, fun card for you today – something silly that will hopefully make you smile.
I stumbled across the Sweet Safari set by My Favorite Things by accident and the quirky animals stole my heart and I knew they had to come and live with me. I colored the giraffe for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge a while ago, and finally fussy cut it and put it on a card:
I wanted the warm tones of the giraffe to be the focal point, so I only added a bit of blue Distress Ink to the background and sprayed it with Perfect Pearl to add shimmer. I am still struggling to add super soft color gradients a la Laura Bassen – mine always turn out more intense than I want, but it’s ok in this case.
To create some more contrast, I die cut the cloud shape but left it completely white. It contrasts with the blue sky and yellow giraffe, but doesn’t add any additional color to the card – I have to remember to use white as a contrast more often. Of course, I also added a few sequins and droplets by Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed the project. Have a fantastic weekend! This card is going off to MarkerPOP “Anything Goes”.
