I’m joining another Sketch Challenge by My Favorite Things. I used the Adorable Elephants set again.
I started with the background. I used the Funky Floral Stencil from My Favorite Things and blended three Distress Ink colors. I used Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn. I used a light hand while blending, I didn’t want the colors to be too dark.
When the background was done, I stamped one of the elephants, the little flowers and the heart shaped balloon. I colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Elephant: W2 – W5
Ears: RV10 – RV21 – WO
Balloon: YG11 – YG03 – G14
Flowers: Yo6 – Y38 – BG000
I die cut the images with my Cuttlebug. I cut a strip of dark blue cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment on it, with some Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. I adhered the sentiment onto some vellum and added it to the background with foam tape. Then I added the images to the card as well. I wanted the dark blue to return somehow, so I adhered the background to dark blue card base, that was slightly bigger than the background. This way, you see a strip of it on the left of the card.
I rounded off the top right corner with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. I added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to the balloon and covered it with Glossy Accents from Ranger.
I had a clear idea in my head and the card turned out exactly the way I wanted.
