Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - G
This fortnight's letter on the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge is G. I did contemplate doing Geisha but as I'd already done 2 oriental themed letters (H for Haiku and K for Kimono) I decided against it. I got this giraffe stamp in a grab bag a while back and it seemed like a good opportunity to use it. Unfortunately due to the size of the stamp and the position of the definition I had to photocopy the definition and add it later - up till now I've always managed to work around the definition. I covered the pages with white acrylic and brushed on ripe persimmon, spiced marmalade, worn lipstick, frayed burlap and pumice stone DIs. The giraffe was stamped and coloured with coloursoft pencils and Sansodor. I cut one of the larger trees away from the stamp and used it along the bottom edge along with a Darkroom Door flower stamp which looks like a tall tree (sort of). I cut a letter from my Hippie Chick alpha and added the definition. Not many letters to go now and I'm very pleased to have managed to keep up - I won't know what to do with myself next year!
