I don't know about you, but when i think of orange and black together i always think Halloween, but however i also think April is a tad early for Witches and Ghosties!! So... i decided to use this little guy :)
The challenge over at Papertake is Making Waves! (scallops or zig-zags) and Theme Thursday this week is Orange & Black, so i decided when i designed this card i wanted it to fit in with both challenges :)
I started with some white glossy cardstock and taking ink onto a cotton wool ball, using circular motions to get the lovely orangey colour. I then added some black ink with a stipple brush to tone it down a bit ! The very cute Giraffe image is from 'Stamps Away' which i've stamped also with black ink. The grosgrain ribbon and buttons are HOTP. The chipboard panel is American Crafts, scalloped card is from Bazzill and the background paper is Basic Grey. The inks used for this card were Adirondack 'Terra Cotta' and Archival Ink 'Jet Black' both by Ranger.
Thanks for popping in today :) see you soon!
