Whimsy Stamps Challenges blog is challenging you to a mission: emboss it! Somewhere on your card there should be some embossing!
My card today is loooooong. The CardPatterns sketch this week (#37) uses a longer card format, and I've been wanting to ink up my giraffe stamp for a while....voila! To top it off, I have some great 8x8 papers from the DCWV Safari Chic stack, which was perfect for this image. There's even a sheet of paper printed to look like the spots on a giraffe!
I kept it pretty simple since my background paper did so much of the work. I embossed the giraffe image and watercolored him - did you know it's a lot easier to watercolor a detailed image if it's embossed? Staying in the lines is so much easier! I also dry embossed the mat under the giraffe with my branches Cuttlebug folder.
