Hope Shines Through

We're starting a new month at the Critter Crazy Challenge Blog and hoping that you will enter your Animal cards.

For my entry this month, I've selected Whimsy Stamps, DoveArt Giraffe with a couple of die cuts added. 

For this design I started with the stamped giraffe on Neenah 110# cardstock and my Copic markers.  Afterwards I fussy cut close to the image and set him aside.  I used distressed Oxides and a makeup brush to get the blended background.  The black tree silhouette is from Hero Arts and the green border Grass is from Lawn Fawn.  I simply glued the tree, then giraffe, then the grass onto another piece of card stock.  

Next I put this in the Misti and stamped the sentiment from the Penny Black set Hope Shines.  Then I cut a black liner mat and attached to the card base, and finally added the card front to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
