Elle Nellie - Add some layers - Ellephantastic Challenge

Good morning all, ahhh the weekend! As its the beginning of the month its time for a new challenge over on

Add some Layers this challenge will run from today 
6th August ~ 2nd September 2011. So you have lots of time to enter..

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.. 

Copic colours
Elephants 
BV28, 25, 23
BV00

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.
