Oh Happy Day

For day 3 of the coloring challenge, I made another ATC for an exchange at Michael Strong Stamps.

  I cut out the black cardstock and used a die to cut a circle in the middle of it.  Then, it was run through an embossing folder for some texture.  The white cardstock behind the circle has sponged on red ink and Honey ink with a swipe of red.
 Next, I measured how much of the giraffe I would be using as its head peeked out of the hole...and colored above that point with Copics.  My exchange called for a color challenge, I was to use red/black and gold. A sentiment and gold sequins finishes off my ATC.

Shelly this is gorgeous - love how you have the 'sunset' behind the circle and the giraffe head coming through it. Great work
