It's Not All Black and White

Who Wants It?

This week's sketch challenge at Splitcoast is my favorite "old standby" design. If I'm really stuck, this one always works. Today I used my new Memory Box stamp set, At The Zoo. It has the cutest selection of solid animal images, each with a matching sentiment. I pressed the giraffe into So Saffron ink, then rolled in Pumpkin Pie, and stamped. Then I used a chocolate chip marker to color his spots and give him an eye and lashes. After masking off his legs, I added the small A Muse oval for ground. Can you see the bits of sky I added on the top part? It's pretty subtle. I used a sponge dauber to lightly apply some Soft Sky ink.

What's In It?
Stamps: At The Zoo (Memory Box); small skinny oval (A Muse)
Ink: So saffron, pumpkin pie, soft sky, close to cocoa, chocolate chip (Stampin' Up!); Timber Brown (StazOn)
Paper: So saffron, chocolate chip, whisper white, pumpkin pie, So Saffron Prints (Stampin' Up!); Picket Fence (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories: Earth elements brads (Stampin' Up!); ribbon (Cherries); scallop scissors (ProvoCraft); spots and dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug); dimensionals

Now, as to this post's title...

A few days ago, Julia was having a blog give away. To enter, you had to let her know something nice you're doing for another person(s). Among other things, I said I would send out three RAK's. Well, terrible me never did it. So, the first three people to comment on this post saying you'd like a RAK, shall receive one. I'll use this card and two others from my stash. Be sure you leave a way for me to contact you for your address. By the way, RAK means Random Act of Kindness, in this case, sending a card for no particular reason.
