Playtime!


Today I have a card using another image from Deedee's Digis "Go Wild" set. I used a pre-colored giraffe image, and added some sponged clouds and grass with Copics. I embossed the background with an older Cuttlebug ef (I forget the name) on some rust-colored cardstock, and then smeared the whole panel with Versamark ink and clear embossed it afterward for a leathery look to match the giraffe. I tied a piece of rust-colored ribbon to the corner as well as the sentiment panel. As long as it's playtime, why not add a fun frog brad to finish this off?

I'm sharing this over at the Crafty Gals Corner #35 where Deedee's Digis is sponsoring their "embossing" challenge.

I wanted to give you a little reminder to come play along with us at Deedee's September progressive challenge. You can find details for playing along right here.



Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Hi, Carol, thanks so much for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. Your Hula Hoop Giraffe sends me back to the '50's! What a fun card! I recognize that pebbly background; it's Tiny Mosaic, perfect for a Giraffe background.

What another fun card! I never did master the hoola hoop myself. As for that EF, my friend calls it "Grandpa's Skin." I never met her grandpa, but maybe her grandpa was an alligator. Anyway Love the heat embossing over that folder, so cool!
