what's up?

hey there! i just finally jumped on the avery elle band wagon and received some of their AWESOME stamps! i don't know what took me so long...but i can tell you this - they are fabulous!

to christen my new stamps from a new (to me!) company, i created a card for the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge! the sketch this week is so fun!! and it SCREAMS sequins! bonus! ha ha!

so here's my card:

i watercolored the giraffe with my inktense pencils - so fun!i used the 'what's up' stamp set, and i am in love! 
the giraffe and one of the clouds is also popped up for dimension. and then, because i was really feeling the groove...i decided to flock the giraffe's mane! flock!! it's so fuzzy, and just fun!! i also added some glossy accents to that hipster's glasses.

i don't know why, but this card just cracks me up! a hipster griaffe, with a flocked mane! yes, please! 
so that's it! 


  1. GET OUT! This is sooooooooooo cute! I love love love this card-- love the idea of the giraffe!! LOVE the coloring and flock for his mane! CLEVER and def. a winner!!! <3

  2. Oh so charming!!! I love that giraffe peeking over the clouds and his fuzzy mane is darling! Thanks for joining is at CAS(E) this Sketch!

  3. Too stinkin' cute!! Such a great idea to add the flock and glossy accents. I'm going to have to rethink that AE stamp set now.
