ICRC 12

I think one day ICR will surely award me the latew entry award ....... Phew ........ All my entries are on last minute but am comparitively early this time :)

So now to the ICRC 12... The challenge was to use dots and stripes ... hold on guys thats not all :) ..... with a tag if possible :) ....

And then the inspirational crafts by the DT were just awesome.

I was in double minds whether to participate or not coz I wasn't getting any ideas. I didn't wanted to use the regular dots and stripes papers or stamps ... just wanted something hatke :) and and and .... the other day was just giong through the newspapers when an advertisement from some travel agency caught my eye. It was an advertisement for the African Safari and had theseTigers and Cheetahs pictures..... That was enough to inspire me but I just used Girraffe and Zebra ...:) .. So here's my take on ICRC 12 .... :)


This is a totally hand drawn nd hand cut card :). So friends howz my Dotty Giraffe and Stripy Zebra ????

Now.... Where is the tag???? Here's the twist ...



I concelled it behind the Girraffe. I made a box tag holder behing the black layer so that the giraffe doesnt stray here and there :P



a snap with the tag kept seprately ..... My whole idea in using the zebra and Girraffe was to convey the message that with out that person ( Girraffe ) one's life would be so dull ..... I don't know if I have done justice in sending the message across :)

Life without colors ................

 A close view of the hand made Girraffe and Zebra :)


Here I have used very thin peeled layer of ply ... Got it when the interior was being done .... Splashed it with some Acrylic colors to look it make colorful :) .. I think it gave a complete effect as a wooden signboard on the fence ... What do you think ???

Sending it across to ICRC 12

Happy Crafting,
Meghna
