PGCB #79 - Cute Critters


Erica's challenge for the Paper Girls challenge blog is all about the little, cute, critters! We have a little critter in our world that will be celebrating his 1st birthday soon, so I had to use this challenge to make him a bright, happy birthday card.

I misted some blue ink over a circle template to give the white card a bit of color and to try to attempt to focus in on the lil' giraffe. I added a little paper trimming to the edge and tried to mimic the mane on the giraffe by adding a yellow/orange pinked boarder.

I paper pieced an alcohol ink colored image over the blue splatter (I thought to pop it up, but the blue mist really made the image wonky) time I may think to mask the image before misting...obviously I need a little more practice :)

Now it's your turn! Come join us and link up a critter project to the Paper Girls challenge blog before 11:55pm (MST) on Sunday, May 16th. 

Happy crafting!
