FEEL THE HEAT!
I had a hard time trying to think of something for this. Remember the elephants from a couple of posts back? They were inspired by this one which I had already made :D In the end I used some pieces that came with the 3D Tando Boat that I made up a while back. Although these pieces are waste really Di still puts them in the pack as they are a lovely shape and size. Its been a bit tricky to photograph though as its pretty shiny, sorry x
I first painted some gesso on so that my Fresco paint would run smoother (this is a personal preference in this case and I don't always need to do this). I tore some paper to use as a mask for the skyline and punched out a circle for the sun. With these in place I dry brushed the paint on in sweeps, using different colours, blending as I went. The masks were 'reversed' so that I could do the ground in the same way. I found an old stamp with an African scene & stamped in green Adirondack. This blurs a little which was what I wanted. The gorgeous giraffe is a stamp by Crafty Individuals which I stamped onto pre painted card and clear embossed. The background has been clear embossed too then Treasure Gold added. Some string finished it all off.
