Onto my card..
I just had to use this absolutely cute elephant digi drawn and designed by the fabulously talented Helen!! Its just so dare cute..
I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch to get the lovely boarder and then just mounted a square piece of card stock onto the front which I had decorated using design papers from Prima sweet fairy 6 x 6 pad..
Here you can see the colours a bit better and note that they are a very dark purple for the patches and nails I used a lighter shade..
BV28, 25, 23
I used BV25 to colour in some of the flowers, added some stickles, pearls, seam binding and a little butterfly in the corner. I also used flower soft to make my own stamens.
Here I painted a chipboard number with paperartsy Fresco Finish chalk acrylics then crackle painted over the top. The gorgeous crochet flower my fabbie Mum made for me and is a double flower. I just added a sliver spacer and brad to the centre.
