You See It - And You Want To Use It!!

Was exactly how I felt when I saw this very cute giraffe! I saw it over on my fellow Funky Hand DT mate Carol's blog and followed the links and downloaded him (along with his other friends!) If you've not come across Lost In Paper Scraps (Dawn) before then go and have a look - she regularly offers cute freebies!

Anyway! The Friday Sketcher challenge is the sketch below and I knew I could use the giraffe in it! And then I had an idea for backing papers - blue with a bit of brown. And remembered Now That's Funky, so printed off the two backing sheets - I actually printed them off smaller than A4 so I could see more of the pattern - rounded the edges and then inked them, layered it all up and added the image. I've used watercolour pencils to colour in and I realised that giraffe spots are actually dark brown rather than yellow, but, hey! Artistic licence!

The two flowers are really lush Prima's that I got as a freebie, the centres are card candy. I do like this card, especially the image and be warned - you will see more of it!!
