A Tall Story

Bugaboo Day3, This one is about colour:

Lovely jungle colours to work with.  I coloured the giraffe with Reno pens.  The wine tree (...I wonder if it grows wine?) is double-layered with 3D foam between layers for dimension.  Edges of embossed cards are inked with toning colours; clouds are inked with white chalk ink (doesn't show up very well.. actually at all).
I like the way this fella is part of the scenery.

TicTacToe: the line is trees-diecuts-critters.

Digi image: Bugaboo
Tree die: Couture Creations
Cloud die: Memory Box
EF's: both Sizzix
Stamp: Hastings Arts Stamps
