You're havin' a giraffe!


These giraffes are digi stamps from D2D. I had printed them out, large, a while back and then done nothing with them. But when I saw the Pinspirational Challenges picture, I decided to dig them out and see what I could do with them.

First, I coloured them entirely with distress ink. Then I coloured in their patches, tongues, ears etc with Promarkers. The next idea came from the City Crafter challenge 'You felt it'. I die-cut a felt heart and sewed round the edge. I deliberately gave my stitching a naive, childlike effect - no truly, your honour, I can sew better than that.....

I'd also like to enter this for Raise the Bar Challenge 'A Couple of Things'.
