Gesso Giraffe

Another card using gesso painted cardstock. This time Mel asked me to see if I could emboss on the tombow markers. You totally can. It suprised me too. When I colored it didn't look wet. But I poured the embossing powder on anyhow and it totally stuck to the colored image. That allowed me to very easily paint in the background on this.
The giraffe is by Viva Las Vegastamps, the waterplants are by Eat Cake Graphics.

Thanks again to Mel for the inspiration!

WOOHOO! You are a superstah! I am in love with the way you painted this. The water's edge is wicked and that sky! It looks like a gorgeous watercolour painting. And that's too neat that the Tombow markers emboss! Love it. I'm havin' a blast since you've been playin' along. Thanks Darlin'! :0)
