Thanks for Sticking Your Neck Out for Me

Thanks for Sticking Your Neck Out for Me card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from My Favorite Things
Here's my card for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  I couldn't resist this adorable new safari animal set, so I picked it up during MFT's year end sale and inked it up as soon as it arrived.

I used the giraffe as my focal image for a little scene.  He was colored with Copic markers and carefully cut out.  I used foam tape to adhere the image to a blue patterned paper panel with a strip of olive green "grass" along the bottom.  I replaced the photo corner style shape in the sketch with a yellow pinking circle sun.  I stamped the thank you sentiment on a kraft strip creatively cut with a Fishtail Flag STAX die.  The finished scene was adhered to a light blue card base. 

Materials Used:
Sweet Safari stamp set, Factory Green and Lemon Drop cardstock, Die-namics Fishtail Flag STAX dies (My Favorite Things); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Kraft cardstock (WPlus9); Cool Caribbean cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Hawaiian Shores cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Aqua Screen patterned paper (Michaels); Pinking Circle dies (Spellbinders); Grass border punch (Fiskars); foam tape
