TSSC - A bit late!


Usually I post my TSSC entry on Mondays, with everyone else -- and even though this card was done, I just had to set it on the back burner so that I could finish a few other things. This is one of those weeks I call my "creative weeks" -- a full out blitz and attack on my stamps and supplies to cook up new techniques and try techniques submitted by other people. I try not to get distracted by my computer on these weeks so that I can just pop out stuff!!!


I thought I better get this on here today, before the week slides away from me, though. I am eating my lunch (worried now, because I have over 400 emails waiting for me to look at -- how does it get so high in 24 hours?) so I thought I would post this.


I did not do the traditional rectangle from the original sketch, found on Mary Jo Price-Williams Technostamper Blog. I changed it a bit, using the diamond-shaped giraffe from Wood-'n-Paper Ink as the focal point (thanks, Dee!). The background on the chocolate paper is from Stampendous, and the circle words and background is from The Angel Company.


The giraffe was colored with Gamsol Pearls (June 2006 Newsletter). Now, I need to go get inky, so if you will excuse me....

Super card, I love the giraffe and it so works for this sketch. That sentiment is perfect too. I will have to remember that one. Thanks for playing and I can't wait to see your new stuff in the newsletter!

Awesome card, the cuttlebug texture add so much character to the layout. Mr giraffe is striking on this card. Excellent.
