CAS(E) this Sketch #20

When I saw this week's challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch, I knew immediately what I wanted to do!  That doesn't happen to me very often, so I jumped right in and go a card made.

Here's the sketch for this week's challenge:



And...here's my take on the sketch:


I found these adorable giraffes online as a coloring image, and brought them into my Cameo program and turned the image into a print and cut.  I colored the giraffes with Copic markers after they were printed and cut out with the Cameo.  I designed the picket fence in my Cameo software and cut it out. (if anyone would like to have a copy of the studio file for this fence, just email me and I'll send it to you)  After I cut the fence out with the Cameo, I added a bit of dimension using a grey Copic marker, and a black fine tip pin.  The sentiment is from PTI and was stamped three times without re-inking.  The little red heart was punched with a MS punch and I coated it with glossy accents after adhering it to the card base.  Finally, I rounded two of the corners with a corner rounder.  (BTW, the blue around the giraffes is not nearly so blue in real life....crazy camera!) 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...

Hugs!

Oh this is just so sweet! I love the heart made from the giraffe heads and the beautiful colouring! Fab!

I've not been by for a while - life quite busy - but I've just been having a look at your cards - you've made some fab ones. I love the blue alien for the CASology challenge!

Hope all's well with you.
