Mi Amore Giraffe

How suave is this dapper Giraffe from DogGoneStamps? He has great smoldering eyes.

I stamped him with Memento Rich Cocoa on Cryogen white paper. I used the following Copic markers
Body - Y21, Y38
Horns - E43
Rose - R35, R05
Stem - G24, Y15
I cut the image out and then colored the edge with W3.

I used Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edge of the Curved Rectangle die cut before using pop dots to attach my image. All the designer paper is from the Mellow collection by Basic Grey. I used Spica pens on the rose and his eyes for a little bling. The saying "Mi Amore!" is computer generated. Finished size is 5x7 inches.

If you like this image, be sure to check out DogGoneStamps, they have lots more great ones. Also check out fellow Design Team member Jenny's wonderful Frog King card. He sure is a cutie.

Beautiful job on the giraffe! I was a bit intimidated so I did not pick him as one of my first stamps; you did a great job with those eyes!
