Cute Elephant

Hey everybody! Today's card features the super cute Wplus9 elephant. I was lucky enough to get the adorable new sets before they were sold out. I'll enter this card to the Wplus9 TBT Challenge: Guiding Light. My oldest Wplus9 set is called "Ink Splats" and I combined it with the new "Bubble Talk" set. Inspired by Maureen's beautiful design, I created this card:


I thought it would be fun to have the elephant create a little piece of art with his trunk. I started using the same technique as Maureen did on her first card, masking a rectangle and inking it with various Distress Inks. Then I removed the masks and stamped the ink splats with matching ink. I stamped the "Hello" into the largest splat and adhered my panel to the cardbase. Now I stamped the elephant onto cardstock, colored it with Copics and cut it out. Then I adhered it with foam tape. Finally I added matching sequins. Here comes a closer look:


I hope you like it! I can't get enough of this cutie and will create some more cards with elephants, soon!
I'll also enter this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes".


Thanks for stopping by!
