Birthday Girl

Three cards in as many days, not bad for someone who had lost the desire to create cards.

I had a little shopping trip over at Mo's and just had to buy this image, my daughter just loves Giraffes and this image fit the bill perfectly for her birthday card.....I also had the idea to print a larger image onto velour paper and use pastel pencils to make a framed picture as part of her birthday box, I'll show this when I complete it.

The main backround was created by brushing on inks, I also used the same technique on the Giraffe section but this time masking out the Giraffe.  The image itself has been coloured with Promarkers, lastly I used LOTV sentiment stamps.....It's a very simple card and one I know my daughter will love for it's simplicity.......Hope you like and thank you for stopping by :-)  Kathleen x
