Long time, no see
by Tina Wilstrup
Hello everyone! Hope you are all well. Today I wanted to play with a few pun sentiments and a rainbow.
I die cut the giraffe 5 times from white cardstock, and cut 5 strips of patterned paper.
I adhered the strips to my A2 sized card base and colored the 5 giraffes with Copics in darker, coordinating colors.
From the same patterned paper I then cut 5 labels to fit my sentiements.
I used the same darkest marker to color the edge of the labels to make them stand out. For this label I even snipped the stamp in 2. I find it easier than to mask the stamp. That way I always end up with ink in wrong places. And I can easily place them together if I want to stamp them as intended later.
I then adhered the giraffes and popped up the labels. And then I thought it was kind of missing something, yet I didn't want to add more dimension or glitter. I know, weird right? Corona isolation must have gotten the better of me, LOL. Anyway, I added a fine black line all around the base, repeating 3 times. I also added a few "stars". I guess I had to have some "sparkle", after all.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great crafty day!
