Wildly Cute Giraffe

     Are you all ready for some cuteness to start your week out with?  Giraffe's are my fave wild animal and Art Impressions has come out with a series of four baby animal stamps called Zoo Babies.  I'm going to share the cards I made for their new catalog.  This one is called "Wildly Cute".
     Art Impressions normally gives their retail distributors first dibs at selling their stamps so they won't be in the actual AI store til November but you can find them now at online stores like Simon Says Stamp and Oozak.
     I created the background using a stencil and distress inks.  Here's what it looked like before I toned it down a bit with the vellum.

     Hope this cutie brought a smile to your face today.
     Be blessed!
