Untwisted

This is one of the "Twist Tie" stamps from Art Impressions - however, I did a little bit of untwisting and only used one of the two giraffes.  He/she is colored with Polychromo pencils and I did some  distressing in the background around him/her.  The background die is from My Favorite Things.  I also had a couple of the clouds that I'd run though the Swiss Dots embossing folder so used those  along with a bit of twine.   Just a little "hey" card.

I'll enter this in the challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies ( to use a critter on the card),  Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets), and Double D Challenges (twine).

Thanks for stopping by...........

There is noting like a good old rainbow to put a smile on someone's face! Ohhhh you bought the Twist Tie stamps.... bet you did not pass up the Doxie one! This is a great little scene you created with the giraffe. Love this! P.S. Double D challenges has one this week to use twine, and I see some. :)

It's a fantastic card, Lynn! Love the giraffe. Great idea to use the die cut to wrap the twine and tie it. I have to remember that one.

There are so many sensational elements to your adorable Hey card, Lynn! First of all, excellent rainbow blending AND grass and sky blending! They are cool backgrounds and I love the way you tied your twine! Mr. (I don't know why I think he's a guy) Giraffe makes an awesome focus pocus all by hisself with a perfect font sediment and dotty clouds!! Hugs, Darnell

You're doing great work with the polychromos. Love this one, and the rainbow striping in the background. It makes a wonderful mat for this goofy giraffe. This one just made me smile! TFS & Hugs
