Whimsy Inspiration - May Week 4

Afternoon everyone 💜

Today I'm sharing one of my favourite cards so far (ooo am I allowed to have using one of the cutest rubber stamps ever. I have to say I have little weak spot for giraffes; I just think they're so sweet and elegant. The stamp is by Krista Heij-Barber, and it's deeply etched rubber mounted on cling cushion foam and it's available from the Whimsy Store.

The stamp is called 'Giraffe Baby Love' and I coloured it using my Copic pens, and added Colour Cloud ink for the sky. I hope you like it. x

All the links to the specific Whimsy products can be found below and the link to the general store is here.

Here's What I Did
First I die cut a scalloped white card blank using a large scalloped circle die. I stamped the image directly onto colouring cardstock and die cut it into a circle. The images was stamped again onto masking paper but I also drew a semi circle around their feet to represent the ground - I cut this all out. I covered up the giraffes and the ground, which would later be the grass area and added my sky using Colour Cloud ink and a cloud template. When everything was dry I removed the mask and coloured the scene in using Copic pens.

The completed picture was matted onto a die cut black and orange circle and added to the card blank using foam pads.  To finish the card I added a little glitter to the flowers.

Here's What I Used 
Rubber Stamp: Giraffe Baby Love

Ooh I just LOVE this gorgeous card hun. I've been staying up watching the Royal Wedding and I really must go to bed, but just wanted to stop in and say how much I love this gorgeous card. Your colouring is delish on this, I love the rich tones and the fab circular card is brilliant. I love the way you've coloured those sweet flowers and your clouds, so so perfect! Fantastic card hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
