It seems like everyone in my Facebook feed is waiting for April the giraffe to have her new baby. If you haven’t seen the live feed you can see it here. I thought to myself this would be a perfect time to use my Designer Giraffe Craft Stamp by Karmabee from Simply Stamps. Love the fun zentangled design in the giraffes!
I started by stamping my giraffes onto a post-it note (I used a couple and glued them together so I would have the sticky at both the head and feet areas.
I used a pair of scissors to cut out my image creating a mask.
I stamped the image onto a piece of white cardstock with black ink.
Next I carefully covered the image with my giraffe mask.
I placed my stencil (Polka from Brutus Monroe) over my image and sponged ink (Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers) and then repositioned the stencil and sponged on a layer of Twisted Citron.
I removed the mask and added a little coloring to the giraffes with markers (Zig Clean Color). I used my Happy Everything stamp – this is a Custom One Line stamp from Simply Stamps. Have you ever wanted a special phrase and couldn’t find it anywhere? Simply Stamps has your problem solved.
I hope you enjoyed my project!!!
Have a great day! Jeanne
