Good afternoon, I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. My husband is outside gardening - trying to beat the rain that's expected. I had been thinking about this card all day yesterday and after discussion with my husband and raiding through my stamps box I came up with this. It was made with the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge in mind - Inspired by a Film Title. The film is "Out of Africa".
The image was stamped using a set of with theKars Storybook stamps. I made a template of the giraffe so a could stamp the rhinoceros making the giraffe look like it is in the foreground.
Looking for backing papers I found the tree and grass papers in my stash. I covered an A5 card with the tree paper and then ripped the grass one and inked the edge with a versamagic chalk ink. I mounted the image on some brown paper from my scraps box. The sentiment was made using word art.
I made these flowers out of tissue paper cut using a Tim Holtz Die - Tattered garland and added various middles - buttons, bees, flowers and pearls. I also found some Paper Mania skeleton leaves which contrasted beautifully with the scene. Finally I used a piece of giraffe ribbon from my stash and a metal bumble bee.
I would like to enter it in the following challenges -
