Shaped Stencil Giraffe by Judy Jackson

One of the things I love about the Technique Junkie newsletter (and there are many!) is how Pat - and others - come up with ways to use the tools and supplies we have in fun and new ways.  This is one of those techniques!

Stencils have been the "in thing" during the last few years.  We have had brass stencils available for a long time but these stencils are the thin plastic kind.

This technique sparked my creative thinking in how can I make a background that will not only enhance the foreground image but coordinate with it?    I started with looking through my stencils and then chose my focal image stamp.  It worked!

Stamp credits are Prickly Pear for the giraffe and Stampin' Up for the verse.   The giraffe is colored in with Copic markers.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you are able to take some time to get "inky!"
