Drinking Giraffe

Here is another of my new stamps from Coronado Island Stamps

I decided to build a scene around him. I stamped the giraffe on Cryogen white paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink then masked him off with Eclipse tape. Then I added the right shore below him, the trees above him and the reeds in the foreground. I over stamped the trees with a green ink for some extra foliage. All stamps are from Coronado Island Stamps . Copics used:
Giraffe - YR21, YR23
Bank - E51, E53
Grass - G24
Water - B000, B00
Rocks - E71
Airbrushed sky - B45

Then I kind of channeled the 70's and macrame-ed a little beaded thing and added it to the card. I also use my Scor-It board to add some lined accents. Very manly card. Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
