Giraffe Cards

Here are three A5 cards I have made with two backing papers, 3 inserts and 2 sheets of toppers from the Peerless Designs Cuddle Upz CD by the ever so talented Sarah Hallam.  Giraffes are one of my favourite animals as it is just so amazing how they keep their heads up.
 
On the first two cards I have added some Gold Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium.  I have used a harlequin mask and scraped the sparkle through and wiped little flecks of the Sparkle Medium around the card - certainly messy - and certainly proved a nightmare with the flash on the camera!!  
On the front of the three cards I have used one of the toppers, added four layers of detail clear embossing powder (as I don't have an UTEE), left it to co cold and cracked and then inked over with Tim Holtz's Tea Dye distress ink pad.  The cards have been finished off with a variety of items like fibres, ribbon, Craftwork Cards sentiments, Papermania Glitterations and Card Candi.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

Lexi's Creations - Monochromatic
Ooh-la-la-Creations - Sparkle and shine (first two cards)
Love to Create - All that glitetrs (first two cards)
Tuesday Throwdown - Monochromatics
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Allsorts - Animals

Love these cards Kym. The giraffe image is so perfect for the dreaded male card. I'm going to have to try the sparkle medium - it gives a lovely effect.
