Gritty Giraffe

Good Morning my dear crafty friends and followers

Well I hope you are all well this fine Sunday morning.  Today will be the last day at Birmingham and then I will get home about 8.30 tonight.  I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and it will be back to normal for 4 days and then I am off again to Hayling Island. 

This my friends is a digi from the artist Sherri Baldy, Sherri has been in the crafting business for more than 20 years and has recently started Scrapbook Stamp Society and Addicted-to-Stamps blog.  You can purchase this image here

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is from my stash which I have layered brown card from my stash.
2.  I have printed Gritty onto Neenah card and coloured with my watercolour pencils.
3.  I then cut this out using my scissor curvy to match the brown card.  I have inked the edges using Dew Drops Versamagic Thatched Straw ink.
4.  I have added gold card candy to the four corners and brown card candy to the two opposite corners on the brown card.  I have then added buttons to the opposing corners.
5.  I have then added the sentiment from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by today
