Super Giraffe!


Katniss: Girl on Fire


Sublime Shower: Crayon Scratching


Owl:

I love them all. Smiley  Super Giraffe is my favorite - the eyelashes were such a great touch!

Thanks so much everybody!!

super giraffe is awesome! I really love the look of that crayon one. How do you do that exactly?

The crayon scratching was so easy. I just picked the color I wanted to show through the scratching and colored the entire card with it, and colored pretty hard to make a good thick layer. Then repeat over that layer with the black crayon. Then you just scratch and the black comes off and your bottom color shows through. I didn't really have a good tool to use to scratch, so I just used a seam ripper.
