IO Challenge- You're an Animal (Animal Cards)


Greetings friends.  I have been itching to get my hands on the new Baby Giraffe clear set (WP771), so this challenge came at the perfect time.  Another thing that made me happy about this challenge is that I stamped this background about a year ago using the Giraffe Cover a Card image and have been waiting to use it on a card.  I knew I was saving it for a reason! 

To make the card, I started by stamping the giraffe background onto light orange cardstock using dark amber ink (I think it was Colorbox Chalk Amber Clay).  Next, I cut out the giraffe and bow out of 140lb watercolor paper using the Baby Giraffe die set. I then used a stamp positioner to position the giraffe and bow stamps onto the corresponding dies.  Finally, I colored the images with some Zig Clean Color Brush markers.  Here is a close up of the giraffe:
