Another quick post this evening, sneaking it in before the baby wakes up!
On the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog this week the challenge is ‘spritz and spray’. I knew straight away I had to enter as I have had an idea for a card in my head for quite a while and this was the perfect excuse to get out a few extra craft goodies to make it (I am still working on the dining room table since losing my craft room to the baby and I have to keep out minimal supplies to keep things respectable – my go to status is ‘mess’ otherwise!).
I stamped the giraffe from Altenew’s Baby Zoo onto scrap paper and cut out a mask, but I actually used the negative here on the project. I stuck the mask onto my card and then used an airbrush to add colour in yellow and brown (I am using a kid’s airbrush machine, crafting budget also reduced due to the baby). I put the yellow down so it made a smooth finish but when applying the brown I purposely made it more spray-like with larger dots to create a texture. I then used Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp the giraffe pattern over the top of my image. I did the same on a slightly larger piece of cardstock to create a matt to match. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
