Wise Giraffe ATC's

Hello.  Gail from the design team here today with some inspiration for the current Rubber Dance colour challenge, Magenta, Yellow and Turquoise.  I decided to use one of my favourite Rubber Dance stamps, Giraffe, and play with some words.  



I've used a Stamplorations stencil and Dreamweavers yellow embossing paste for the background, with Rubber Dance stamps Giraffe, and words from Mail Art and Sarcastic Superpower.


I stamped and embossed the giraffe and words on self adhesive paper and fussy cut.  I added a black mat behind the words.  



I decapitated the giraffe, ouch! so I could add her head at a different angle.  Hmmmmm, she knows!!  You know!!  



Again I added the head at a different angle with words from Sarcastic Superpower.

  
Hope you enjoyed my little trio of giraffe wisdom.   Here's the challenge colour board



I hope you get time to create and join the fun.  Remember, the Rubber Dance challenges are two weekly now, so this challenge closes on the 14th and there will be a new theme challenge starting on the 15th.  

All the stamps I used today are available in the bright and beautiful Rubber Dance shop.

  7. LoL You made my day, Gail! This is so funny :-)) It reminds me of the old Norwegian joke (or something): "Jai vet hvor postkassa di bor".. This was a very popular sentence when I was young for about 100 years ago.
    I love the way you snapped the giraffe to get a different look.
    Hugs, Anita ♥
