I am not exactly used to adding many layers to a card. I would love to, trust me – I’ve gathered too many cards like them in my Pinterest boards (yes, multiple boards! :D), hoping to try out something someday. And this is the outcome of the first of many to come –
The elephant is from Jungle by TPC Studio stamped using Hero Arts Soft Pool and Memento Teal Zeal.
I used vellum colored using Copic marker and a die from Balloons by XCut and tied it to the elephant using a black string.
The doily in the back is die-cut using Delicate Doilies by Spellbinders.
The sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
The pattern paper adhered to the card base is from Christmas & Winter stack by DCWV.
I used an embossing folder to get the letters, but I don’t know its name or where I bought it from. 😦
When I stamped the elephant, it didn’t come out so well – you can still see it is blotchy at places. Even though I really love the images themselves, not so much the stamp. Alas, not a good stamp. 😦 I had to try and spread out the color by watercoloring using the same inks on top, to try and repair the damage. Well, the elephant was just too cute to abandon, don’t you agree? 😉
I am submitting this card to Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 273 and The Paper Players Challenge #249
