What was I thinking???

This card was amazingly easy to create.  I'm not convinced that Blushing Bride was the right colour for the matte, but...  not much I can do about changing it now.  This card started with the stamp.  Originally I tried to stamp the image on paper sprayed with water - no luck.  Then I tried to spray water on the already inked stamp - no luck again.  So finally I scribbled some zig zag's  of Concord Crush on watercolour paper and then used my Aquapainter to blend it all together.  I really like how the Concord Crush ink separated into purple, blue and pink.  I stamped the Giraffe in Concord Crush on Very Vanilla Cardstock and then carefully cut it out with Kraft scissors. 
The Fun Stuff:
1.  Paper -Concord Crush, Very Vanilla, Watercolour Paper, Blushing Bride DSP - a hostess pack
2.  Ink - Concord Crush
3.  Stamps - Animal Stories
4.  Accessories - Stampin  Write Marker, Aqua Painter, Concord Crush 1/2" stiched poly ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Distressing Kit

Hi Sandra, just come across your blog while browsing on Colour Q and wow just love all your work, but especially all your scrapbooking pages. Am really into this lately, more so than cards, and am attending classes and am so interested to see other stampin up friends use their stamps and punches etc., in scrapping. I think your work is lovely with such clean lines and focussing of the photos. Really beautiful. Am looking fwd to adding you as a blog I will follow on my blog.

Needed to write you a tiny word so as to say thanks a lot over again regarding the great methods you have contributed at this time. It is certainly pretty open-handed of you to present unreservedly all that most of us could have sold as an e-book to get some cash on their own, most importantly since you might have done it if you ever considered necessary. The suggestions also acted to become a good way to fully grasp that other individuals have a similar dream like mine to see significantly more when considering this issue. I am sure there are lots of more enjoyable moments up front for many who go through your forum.
