Just call me Old Blu Eyes!

I promised you a sexy giraffe tonight. Dog Gone Stamps has the best giraffe with the sexiest eyes, I can't bring myself to color them any color but Blue.

I really wanted this to be a masculine card, I think I succeeded. I absolutely love this giraffe. Yea I know I say that about all the Dog Gone Stamp images but just look at them!

I colored the giraffe with copic markers and sponged around the edge with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink. I mounted the main image on brown cardstock. I mounted the piece of green minds eye designer paper on a piece of Marigold cardstock from Stampin Up. The brown stripe is from the Outlaw designer pack from Stampin Up. and that is mounted on a piece of Kraft cardstock. I used a beige diecut Quikutz label that I cut out with my cuttlebug. I sponged all of the edges of all of the panels.

Before I mounted the matted panels together I tied the brown satin ribbon around the left side of the green panel vertically and tied the knot bow. I used my paper piercing tool, more affectionately known as my frog stabber, to punch the holes for my corner brads. I added a large decorative brad to the center hump of the label.

I mounted the green panel on double sided foam pictures tape and did the same to the giraffe image so that it has real defined layers. The sentiment will go on the inside of the card.

Don't you agree that this is one of the coolest images of a giraffe that you have ever seen? If you like this image and the others that I show regularly be sure to check out Dog Gone Stamps because I only have about a dozen at the moment.

Okay, that is it for tonight. Tomorrow I will have more StampTV challenge cards. They are having a different challenge every day.

See you tomorrow.
