Less is more - Something with legs


It's Saturday!  That means a new challenge from Less is More which is a one layer week and the theme is something with legs.

My first thought was a spider!!  However when I told my husband the theme of the challenge his first thought was a giraffe.  So I went with the giraffe from Fox and Friends.  Much nicer than a spider!  Having thought of a giraffe I asked him what sentiment he would put with it and bless him he came up with a few.  This is one of them.  Once I had that I came up with this idea.

The card base is 6" by 6" in Whisper White card stock.  I printed the sentiment in blue using Curlz font.  I then masked the sentiment with a circle and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzazz.  I stamped the giraffe repeatedly around the circle in So Saffron and then using a scallop mask sponged Bashful Blue around their heads to create clouds. 

I'm a bit mmmm about this one.  I like the idea and kinda like the result and it is growing on me but it's so far out of my comfort zone! 

Hope you've had a great Saturday, We had some sun but some really heavy showers too.  Thanks for joining me. x
