Exciting news to share and discounts!!

Hello friends, a late post for you all!! Hope you are having a relaxing Saturday, for some Sunday, I spent most of the day doing yard work, weeds grow a lot faster than you think, LOL. I did a lot of cleaning and then I took a nap, I was exhausted. After that, I had a good hamburger (thanks to my wonderful husband for buying it, hehehe) and crafted in a very quiet craft room.

Anyway, did you follow April on YouTube? Oh my goodness, I did, I stayed up until very late because it was the time for a cute baby giraffe, of course we all were really wrong of her due date. And today, the only day I slept in she decided to have the baby, I just had a good laugh and enjoyed the replay, so to celebrate I make a Giraffe card. BTW, I think the baby should be named "Charlie"

Giraffe card steps:
  • Using your MISTI for better impression, stamp the giraffe image on a piece on Vellum in Memento Tangelo Ink.
  •  Cute image, isn't it?
  •  After that, add little ink of Memento Rich Cocoa to the stamp to create some shades only.

Now, time to create the background, I use this super cute and easy technique called "Tie Dye Circles", you can see it HERE
  • Start with your lightest ink color, here I started with Scattered Straw, then Wild Honey and Vintage Photo Distress Ink, after that starting with the darkest color apply with with a brush and let the magic appears.Easy, right?

And this is the card after putting all the pieces together. I used a retired die for the sentiment.
Now, if you have Technique Junkies  stamps, join our April Challenge, using this technique, you can check out the details and link you project HERE
