MFP Blog Hop Day 2~ AFRICAN VELDT



Today's featured set is called African Veldt. I used the MFP glossy cardstock and brayered on the shades of orange and stamped the tree and elephants in black. Stamped elephant on white and colored in Copics, mounted to Nestabilities octagon frames. Card base was embossed with a texture plate and finished with twine and beads.
The second card uses that fabulous giraffe, also colored in Copics. Basic Grey Sugared paper because it had those cute little giraffes on it :)

It just dawned on me I forgot to comment (I fixed the link and then got sidetracked! SAT) Your red card is so perfect as a "African" sunset and your fun giraffe card is great!

Your elephant card definitely says African safari and the giraffe is incredible! I don't think I would have thought of the tiny roses, but they really work so well on this card!
