Thinking of you

Today I have made a Thinking of You card using the "G-fa" Giraffe  image from Mo Mannings.  I have colored him with Copics and did a little experimenting with the colorless blender and cool gray-C1 around the edges for my shading.  I like the way this shading turned out on the card better than the way it looks in my photo.  The cardstock is from SU as is the sentiment and the punches.  I used the oval and branch from the bird punch to make it look like leaves hanging from the trees.  It was too nice of a day to be inside for the whole day so I did take the grand kids to the pool for the afternoon and then came back to finish my card.  They had fun at the pool and then "helped" with the card making also. 

I am going to try a couple of challenges and I entered this card at.

  4. Beautiful card. I love this image. I shade around my pic with gray a lot. It makes the image pop. I usually use C00, C0 and C1 and then the colorless blender to even them out.

  5. Saw your card on MIM and as I love giraffes, came over for a closer look. Your card is superb, fab colouring.
