InkOn3 Dance & Twirl Blog Hop

Hope you're ready for some cuteness overload! It's new release day over at InkOn3.
And it's adorable!!! 
Wanna see??? Here ya go.

How cute is this stamp set??? The moment I say it, I was in love. Here's a pic of my blog post the other day.

Now, on to my project for this hop. I might say, the giraffe was my favorite image right from the start!

I mean...come on! Cute right? 
How do you get any cuter than this? I stamped out the images onto the bits left after die cutting this frame/window die from Pretty Pink Posh. I used Blackout ink. It's a great, dark black ink for any coloring medium. I set about to color my images using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I made the three smaller windows into shakers. I filled them with seed beads. 
Instead of mounting the larger image under the acetate, I mounted it on the outside using foam tape for added dimension. 
I brushed a glitter/sparkly pen over the tutu and the sentiments.

Ok...don't look too close. I made a big mistake....but I wasn't gonna go back and fix it. I'd have had to start all over! I forgot to color the flowers in the hair on the three small images. My bad, lol.
Just pretend, oh?

I ran a piece of hot pink paper through an embossing folder. I like the added texture of the dots. I mounted that to an A2 sized card base of heavy white cardstock. I then added the shaker element onto the top of that using liquid glue. 

So, that's it. Hope you enjoyed my project. Here's the list for the blog hop lineup.

  15. I really like the giraffe too. You so rarely see stamp sets with giraffes doing things (as opposed to the elephants or mice, which tend to get more play), so that's a fun, unique image. And I love how you made the giraffe twirl through the windows. Such a fabulous idea; thanks for sharing!
