Case-ing this sketch

I've been wanting to join in with the challenge at CASe this sketch all week, but only found time at the last minute! 
I used Hero Arts "Little One" and Wplus9 "Party Animal" for this card, embossing the image and the sentiment in white. I then blended Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick and Spun sugar over the top panel (after die cutting the edge with the edge of a Spellbinders die).  I then coloured the little giraffe with Distress Markers in Spiced Marmalade and Picket Fence.  I thought the sentiment needed a bit more definition, so I created a shadow with a Copic Marker (W1).  I thought the pink background looked too flat, so I sprayed a background stamp (Hero Arts Garden Tile Background) with water and stamped over the whole panel, which removed little bits of colour - not heaps, just enough to give a bit of texture.  After mounting the panel onto a top-folding white card, the Simon Says Stamp sequins were the finishing touch.
Thanks for visiting :)
