You Having a Giraffe

 Morning and my second post today is for a card made having a play with some a(to me ) Pink Ink stamps set-bought from someone on a FB selling page and had to have a play-made two but this is the first happy accident lol.

I had the brilliant idea of die-cutting the front to show the image inside-pity I didn't make sure the die-cut was the right was -so the image went in upside down -thought it was perfect with the sentiment so went with it.The image and sentiment are on 3-D foam pads,p.paper from The Works and promarkers on the image.

I have this stamp and thought it was a fab idea to put it upside down - even though I now realise it was unintentional lol! Like the colour you used too. Thanks for the inspiration.

I absolutely LOVE this card and so well deserved of the win!! said...

I love this card and one of my fav stamps by Pink Ink too. I would never have guessed if you hadn't have mentioned it, I thought your gorgeous giraffe was supposed to be peeping our from her palm leaves that way. Congratulations on your win!! Michelle x

Ha ha ha, I love your happy accident. My first impression was that you were aiming for something surreal - which it certainly was, my brain trying to make sense of a giraffe hanging from a tree ... but I loved that surprizing challenge!
