Rare Rose Gold Giraffe

I have been playing with Rose Gold lately and I decided to do something a bit unexpected...

I made a rose gold Giraffe!

Darling isn't she?  

I started off by spritzing the entire tag with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. I then flicked Rose Gold API onto the tag, smooshed it with an acrylic block and let it dry for a minute or so then flicked more Rose Gold API over it and let it dry.  I then used the Bubbles stencil, a sponge dauber and Rose Gold Delicata ink to add more pattern to the tag.

I then used a variety of VersaFine Clair inks to stamp flowers from the Big Bloom Factory set of stamps over the card and a few extras on a spare tag that I previously inked in the same fashion as the other tag.  I also at this time stamped the sentiment Be Mine.

I stamped the giraffe using Glamorous VF Clair ink and coloring it with a water brush and Rose Gold API.

The giraffe was fussy cut and mounted on the tag with double stick foam tape.

I added flowers, gemstones, sequins and ribbons ...

I had so much fun with this rose gold giraffe I think I'll make a few more!
I may even stamp up a whole Rose Gold heard of giraffe...
