Today I want to share a card with you which I've made using the Adorable Elephants stamp set from MFT.
To make this card I took the sketch from the latest MFT Sketch challenge #263, and used the color palette of the ColourQ #324 .
To start off I cut circles in various size from a scrap paper using my Cricut. I used it as a stencil to sponge some Distress inks (Mowed lawn, Twisted citron, Tumbled glass, Peacock feather) on the card base so that it can show the horizontal panel in the sketch. The elephant was stamped in black and colored with copics which I've got as a christmas gift :)!!! It was my first try with this marker. After I fussy cut the elephant, I cut a balloon from a silver glitter paper, tied some soft green twine on the balloon and gave it to the elephant. I mounted the elephant and the balloon using some foam tape.
The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I stamped it on a vellum using StazOn black ink, cut to a banner and adhered it slightly curled on the card base and to the twine.
To finish off the card I added some clear sequins and colored a shadow of the floating elephant with copics.
When I was making this card, I had some other challenges in mind where I love to play along.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a restful weekend!
