Giraffe tag in autumn colors

It's Monday and my turn to share an "Anything but a card"  project over at Catch the Bug.

I used one of Jodie's images from a jungle set - colored up with Promarkers a while ago. Now, I don't believe you have autumn with golden leaves falling off on the savannah, but who cares, this little giraffe lives somewhere where it's the kind of autumn like here. In blogland we're used to see green pigs, pink elephants and everything else we fancy, no matter the real life colors.
I used a tree die from Kort&Godt and leaf dies from Lawn Fawn, Every element on here is made of scraps. The yellow seambinding ribbon was a leftover piece, the thread was sent to me by Mimi (thank you so much, Mimi!). The sentiments are stickers.

This tag is also for:
Send a Smile for Kids - Cute Fall or Halloween for Kids
Crafty Catz - #336 Anything Goes with a optional twist - Autumn Colors
Simply Papercraft - #35 Anything Goes

This is such a sweet image Pia, and I think the embellishments co ordinate perfectly. I suspect the trees will still loose their leaves in the dry season, so that's what's happening on your tag!
Hugs, Avril xx

So cute Pia. It looks gorgeous even if they don't have autumn as you stated. It is an artist impression.

Mimi said...

Haha! I was busy laughing at your desription of falling leaves on the savannah and the magical animals of Blogland when I read that you used some yarn I sent :) Perfect! Love this adorable giraffe! :)

The colours you chose certainly are autumnal and suit the giraffe image so well the seam binding and threads complete the scene.

The string is raffia

This little giraffe is so cute, love it! :D Great use of scraps and your autumnal tag is just perfect! The artists are free to make all they want with their creation and it's right also for crafters! :D

A fabulous tag Pia, such a super giraffe and great details.

MaryH said...

It's whimsical and just pure delightful. He's a darling little giraffe, and I'm sure the savannahs have their own kind of autumn colorations. (Just think, giraffes are rather autumn colored anyway!) Love the dies you've added on this card, that go with the theme - and love that you've made the design into a tag shape. Lovely trim at the top too! TFS & Hugs
