This morning I have been playing with three things
  • A creepy cute giraffe image from from Oddball Stamps - look back on Friday to see my other make
  • A 'sitting on the shelf' card
  • Some new dies from Reverse Confetti - Perfectly Paisley. (So much for not buying until I have used unused stuff in my craftroom!!)
Any way I decided to print the image A4 size on Neenah Desert Storm and add a little colour with a handful of Promarkers and some glitter glue.
I then decided to score, fold and cut to make this image 'sit on the shelf' - no template, just by playing with the idea. I did reinforce some areas with extra card,

This is sitting on the little shelf above the fireplace (looking up).

I added Paisley shapes at random - my idea was falling leaves - using scraps of paper from my stash.
I also added googly eyes...

This is sitting on the back of my usual photography table.
It will fold flat to go in a large envelope.

What do you think?

Happy Crafting!
