MFT May Release Countdown--Day 2

It's 2 more sleeps until My Favorite Things May Release! Are your wish
lists growing each day?

Today I'm sharing a project using the new Giraffing Me Crazy set with--
you guessed it--giraffes! It's a versatile set that can be used to welcome a
new baby, for Mother's Day, or "just because" cards.

I wanted to keep the whimsical look of the images, so I white embossed, then 
ink distressed them. Copics were used to fill in the spots, muzzle, and mane.
A stitched dome piece was ink distressed and stenciled clouds were added to
give the piece some dimension.

A kraft card base was stenciled with the Crosshatch design and the dome 
was adhered on top. The card was finished off with the sentiment and enamel 
dots. Also, their eyes were dotted with Ebony Nuvo Drops.
