Choose and cut complementary cardstock, sized to fit each of the panels less 1/8" all around. This allows the card base colour to show. I cut the clouds freehand but you could use any cloud shape from cartridges. The kite is cut twice; 1 plain white, 1 from print cs. Paint kite tail ribbons. Add baker's twine to the kite tail with glue. "Pop" the top kite and add a number "1" to the kite.
Paint giraffe spots by hand using Pro Markers. Horns, tail and feet are inked with Tea Dye and dark brown.
