Elephant Trio

This card was definitely inspired by the new Collection of papers from Basic Grey "Marrakech" . This little elephant is from Coronado Island Stamps -- and I have to brag on the stamps -- this little guy has so much detail to him! I stamped the Elephant with Versafine Onyx Black and then used a Square Nestie to cut out, using the Nestie as a mask while I airbrushed a little yellow. The jagged edge is a Martha Stewart border punch. Yes... my addiction with those punches continues! I did not have a good sentiment to pair with this image, so I added the little double circle punch and looped a ribbon thru it for an extra embellishment, plus I also did not want to cover up the Elephants on the background paper. Little Square crystals turned on the corners to finish the card. Final card size is an A2.

  1. Yeahhhh, great job on maintaining the detail--it looks printed!!

  2. What a great little elephant!!! Very nice job. Miriam

  3. I have 3 of those cute little CID elephants, trunks and tails in different positions - all extremely cute! But, alas, I don't have the perfect DP like you. And ANOTHER MS punch??? Lady - you are worse than I am! But your productions are fabulous. My family still has a home on Elephant Rock Beach so anything to do with elephants is top drawer. Great job!

  4. Jenny, what a beautiful card! I've just bought this Marrakech set of papers and I'm dying to use them (need to get myself well first!!) That elephant stamp is gorgeous!
