Wild about giraffes!

0904-wild-about-giraffes

I have always loved Stampin’ Up!’s Wild About You set.  Its solid images are great for a variety of stamping techniques.  Here, I used “thumping”:  after the image is inked up, take a marker and “thump” the side of the brush tip on the rubber, changing the direction of the pen.  Breathe on the rubber to moisten the ink (a technique called “huffing”) and stamp.

Ink:  More Mustard, Really Rust, Stampin’ Write Markers (Really Rust and Chocolate Chip), Creamy Caramel
