Hello and welcome. This week we are making \”masculine\” cards at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and I am so pleased to be this week\’s hostess. I needed a card for a friend having cancer surgery and I came up with this design.
Baby Giraffe by Impression Obsession is one of my all time favorite stamps and I thought the sincere look on the giraffe\’s face could convey my well wishes.
I started by making an A2 top folding card using cold press watercolor paper. I then heat embossed the giraffe in brown. I mixed my own water color browns by combining purple with yellow and orange and then went to work painting. I think the monochromatic colors work well for a man (or woman). I am pleased with the clean CAS look.
I used a Visible Image sentiment stamp inside \”Life can be tough but darling so are you.\”
UPDATE: I was so pleased to see that my card was chosen as the \”winner\” for the Addicted to CAS challenge.
As You Like It Challenge: Animals or People I love to use animals in cards and giraffes are a favorite. One of my favorite things to do is hand feed giraffes and I have done this at zoos all over the US.
Always Fun Challenge – CAS I am excited about this CAS theme!
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – E is for… Embossing. I used brown embossing powder for my watercolor giraffe.
I am so pleased you stopped by!
