Just so Hippy

Remember the hippo card I posted a few days ago? Well, this giraffe is from the same Gina K Designs set. The set is called "Just so Hippy". I colored this on Monday night while watching TV. Then last night I put it together while watching TV. I'm too pooped out to sit in my stamp room and create a card all at once...but I can do it a little at a time. I used to HATE coloring because I thought I sucked at it. But finding the right medium seems to be the trick. You get what you pay for. And man...I'm loving playing now with my new prismacolor pencils and oderless mineral spirits!

The brown cardstock is Bazzill. The rest of the papers/cardstocks are from CTMH. I used a coluzzle template to create the big scalloped edge. Then I went back and on the top layer I used a mini hole punch to punch each scallop in the center so the white shows through from the second layer.

I don't usually make girly cards...but my last two have definately been girly...all pastel colors. That is so NOT my style! But I like both cards.

I think I'll be sharing my Mouse A Round cards over the next few days. So if you like House Mouse cards...come back and visit!

This is Just So Dang Cute!! Great job, Jane. I just love my prismacolored pencils and gamsol, too!!!! That is my favorite medium. I love your color combos, and that scalloped coluzzle is awesome! I don't have one like that, but I can see how useful it would be. GREAT job!

Jane - this is so my style. Love what you have done with this. I hear you about colouring, it is all about having the right tools! You have done a sensational job with the colour matching.
