CASology Goes on SAFARI

How great that I get to craft while away on vacation in Costa Rica!
And I feel like this week's cue card for our CASology challenge is perfect: SAFARI.

I really wanted to make this a one-layer card, so stamping this giraffe and sentiment required a little bit of masking and drawing. I got this idea quite a while back from the fabulous Kristina Werner.
Here you can see how short the actual stamp is compared to how he turned out.
Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens are great for this technique, because you have so many options in nibs size. I colored everything with Copic markers and he's ready for his safari!
You have to check out the wildly amazing inspiration cards from the DT and guest designer!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog, too! :) I couldn't find an email for you to answer your question, but the font set I used on my 'teacher' card is from Altenew. It's their Calligraphy Alpha stamp set. :)
