I used the giraffe from PTI's "Sweet Baby" stamp set and basically just inked up the head and neck as I made my way around with the different colored inks. I did use a pencil and ruler to make a few marks, or I knew I would have giraffe heads going every which direction! I also laid out all my colors just like Dawn suggested, and then I don't know where I went wrong, but I didn't stamp my colors in the right "rainbow" order. Oh well, still think it turned out pretty darn cute (IMHO!!)! Here's a closer up view of the center:
I have to give a BIG thank you to Colleen who made a rainbow colored sentiment in the middle of her medallion, and I fell in love with the idea and had to CASE her! I did do mine a little differently and used the edges of my ink pads to create my rainbow and then used the "baby" die (PTI) to cut it out. I used the following inks to make my rainbow: Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Harvest Gold, Simply Chartreuse, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, & Limeade Ice.
This was a fun technique, and some of the cards already posted have used stamps that I never would have thought of using and made fabulous cards! You can check out Dawn's video, great card, all the other entries, and info on how to play along all right here .
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Tuesday! I'm off to go baby shopping with my daughter who has some coupons for Buy Buy Baby that are burning a whole in her pocket! :0)
