Crafty Boots - Animals

Time for another Crafty Boots challenge - Bev has chosen the theme of animals.

I decided to use an old favourite stamp (and quite a hunt for it there was too, as I forgot which drawer of stamps it was in!)

Anyhow, I also decided to revisit an old technique that I've not done for a long time either, a shadow box card. This about the only time I measure anything when I'm cardmaking!

 I used distress inks on the background and stamped the giraffe couple (aren't they sweet!) - the stamp is by Stampendous in sepia archival ink onto the background.

the fern fronds are also by Stampendous.

Stamped the giraffes again on white card and cut out to mount onto the front of the frame.

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger the last few weeks and hands up and admit this is mostly copy and paste, but just wanted to thank you for your visits whilst I have been poorly, hopefully when we return from holiday I will back to normal - whatever that is !

That's a beautiful stamp. What a great design for a card - you could make little stage shows and shadow puppets :D Love it - this one made me smile a lot! Especially after just coming from Darcy's Giraffe!
