Wild About You

This fun little elephant was inspired by a card I saw by Jeanne S. at The elephant was inked with Bashful Blue then I used a Not Quite Navy marker and ink pad to ink the edges and to stamp the small flower directly on the elephant stamp. Then I huffed and stamped the elephant. Hint: Breathing or "huffing" on your stamp adds moisture to the ink before you stamp. (The elephant is from SU Wild About You. It's retiring at the end of this month, so if you can't live without it send me a message and I'll order it for you.)

The elephant was then masked and the sky and grass were sponged in. I used a Garden Green marker to add the grass blades. Hint: Turn the image upside down and draw the grass by pulling the marker towards you.

The base was pieced with Not Quite Navy and Pretty in Pink cardstock stamped with the Boho Backgrounds. Not Quite Navy was stamped in white craft ink and the pink was stamped with versamark. I used the cropadile to punch to holes in the top left corner of the main image to add the ribbon bow.

That is the cutest little elephant. I have been wanting that stamp set for quite a while. Now, I really want it. Julie, you are so talented! How did your stamp camp go?
