#921 – Elephant Love!

Hello and welcome! We have a new challenge up at the Seize the Birthday challenge. This time, the Topping was chosen by Lindsey and she chose ‘Create a Scene‘. But of course, like always, the Topping is optional and you are free to go without it, and join us as long as it is a birthday project.

And here’s what I created –

I started with stamping the images. The two elephants are from Mama Elephant Ella & Friends and WPlus9 Bubble Talk. The flowers from Purple Onion Designs Blooms No.2, the little cupcake from Memory Box Birthday Bunnies and the clouds are from My Favorite Things Scene Builder. I stamped them all on my linen textured white card panel using a light grey ink. The extra grass I drew myself. I then colored the panel with pencils, and used mineral oil to blend them.

I then trimmed the panel and stamped the sentiment, from My Favorite Things Friendly Foxes. I then adhered this panel over a kraft cardbase.

With this card I’m joining the following challenges –

Global Design Project challenge #279: Animal

Addicted to Stamps and More challenge #399: Any Occasion

Hop over to the Seize the Birthday challenge blog to see more shades of greens from our talented DT and our Surprise Party Guest Carol Mayne! And thank you so much for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  1. Love the added interest that the textured yardstick gives to your colouring. This is such a cheerful and happy card. The recipient will certainly feel wonderful when they receive this beauty xx

  2. Breath-taken-away by the absolutely adorable, detailed scene you’ve created! The elephants are darling, especially the little one sharing a cupcake, and I adore the ‘scene’ you’ve created for them, complete with flowers, clouds and grass. Work of art!
