Elephant Safari

Hello!

I have had the Altenew Orikami stamp set for a while now – and while I’ve used the fish and bird stamps, I haven’t used the animals yet. So, this card is to use just that! 🙂

Elephant Safari!I adhered brown paper on the card base and swiped Frayed Burlap distress ink on it. I then cut out another panel of white card stock the form the base for the rest of the card. I stamped the elephant from the Altenew Orikami stamp set using Stormy Sky distress ink and colored it using Stormy Sky and Broken China distress inks. I then drew the outline again using a pen and fussy cut it.

I then stamped the sentiment using stamps from Big Bold & Party from Winnie & Walter using Stormy Sky distress ink. Finally I foam mounted all the pieces on the card.

And that’s my card!

I am submitting this to The Male Room Challenge #10 – Colours and Sovushka Slavia May CAS Marathon: Step 2: Travel (this card denotes a safari trip!)
