Giraffe Boghart?!

Thursday, February 12, 2009

I told you I had a smoldering giraffe didn't I?!? Does he not have that 'come hither' look on his face?! I REALLY enjoyed coloring this guy in! The details on him are amazing!

He's from Doggone Stamps and you may have already seen some cards on SCS made with him from the other design team members, like this one by Mitzi or this one by Nancy, AKA Pound Master! LOL

I didn't have to do a lot of coloring to Mr Boghart to bring him to life. I used Morning Marigold first then Creamy Caramel on any shadow areas. Cool Caribbean is in the background to ground him.

Got my sewing machine out yet again! I'm trying to find a happy setting on my machine to prevent the corners from pulling towards the center. I think it's a tension thing. If anyone has any suggestions - I'm all ears! :D

It's Friday tomorrow and it's also my day off work!! Waahoooo! I soooo need the break!
