Whimsy Giraffe

Happy Monday everyone!!!  As I mentioned in my last post I am writing this up early and scheduling it so I am not going to have much to say to you this time.  That is probably a good thing so you don't have to listen to be blab about stupid stuff.
Today starts another wonderful challenge at Whimsy.  The challenge this week is punchy.  You are to use your punches and try to use them in a new and unusual way.  When I ran accross this cute giraffe I came up with the idea to use circle punches and make them look like the spots on the giraffe.  Now, silly me did the card up backwards compared to the giraffe colors but who cares, right?
I colored in Mr. Giraffe using prismacolor pencils and baby oil.  I bought some chalk a long time ago and used that to make the giraffe look like he was somewhere instead of just floating.

I am already at a loss for words so if you have a question please feel free to email or leave a comment with your question.  I do apologize for the picture.  I finished this card at night so I wasn't able to get a good picture outside and my camera seems to take horrible pictures inside.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

I love how this turned out!! Using the circles to make spots for your background was a terrific idea.
