Giraffe and Pebbles

Morning and I have a whopping four DT posts today-the second one is for the Masculine challenge at Crafty Girlz,I used the Giraffe image from Toadstool printables,coloured with promarkers,coloured cardstock from Papermill Direct and wooden beads from stash.The background I made using the stamping with an embossing folder technique where you ink the embossing folder a first for me but will definitely use again,the embossing folder is pebbles from Crafters Companion.
