Just another weblog

Lucky, lucky me!!!

Posted by manicstamper on March 5, 2007

How lucky was I to receive this beautiful giraffe stamp? Blog Candy from Kim of Creative Diversions.

As I just love giraffes………very lucky indeed.

I just couldn’t wait to get stamping with him and knew that the Memories Mists would be perfect with this image.

So I started by spraying a piece of smooth cream card with the Pale Ale MM and followed this with a spritz of Amaretto MM.

I wanted a clean image from the stamp so used StazOn in Timber Brown for the stamping rather than the chalk ink pad which gives a softer finish.

Colour was added to the image with a pencil crayon and the edges of the card were smudged with Glimmer Chalk in a lovely coppery tone.

The background paper was a little too clean looking for the for the stamped piece so I also spritzed that with MM’s to tone it down.

I enjoyed making this card so much that I made another one which is something I don’t often do but that will go in my box of cards that I dig into when I need to send one.

Thanks so much Kim
