Shimmering Giraffe

Hello fellow inkers!

I've been away for a few days so not much in the way of card making these school holidays. Whilst away I caught up with a lovely friend of mine who used to be an avid card maker (in fact it's partly her fault I've acquired this inky obsession) but has now developed a fixation with mixed media. So she presented me with a whole heap of stamps she no longer uses. I really felt all Christmases had come at once!

One of the sets she gave me is Altenew's Geometric Menagerie which I've used to create a card for 3 

I've taken this month's colours at Altenew and made a very CAS card for AAA Cards (maxi white space) and CASology's new challenge where the cue word is 'shimmer.' I've coloured the giraffe with Copics and added some clear glitter to some of the triangles but yet again I lament that the glitter really hasn't been done justice in the photo!

Thanks for popping by!

  1. Brilliantly CAS, Claire ... fun sentiment ... love how you've coloured the individual segments (if they're called that!) of the giraffe ... and I see all the shimmer on my screen, it's luscious! How fabulous to have all those new goodies to play with ... enjoy! Hugs, Anita :)

  2. Oh yes! I adore your shimmering pink giraffe and the wonderful amount of crisp clean white space too. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

  3. Wonderful card - perfectly CAS! Love the coloring the the touch of shimmer! Thanks for joining us at CASology!

  4. Terrific card, Claire! Love the touch of glitter and great colors!

  5. The added sparkle was such a fun choice for this sweet giraffe, I love it Claire!

  6. Love your artsy, glittery giraffe. Such a fun take on our cue word this week. Thanks for joining in the creativity at CASology this week.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
