About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Good morning!! I'm still trying to catch up with sharing cards I made last year - and this is one of them. I made it for my step-daughter for her birthday, just before she when to Thailand. Part of her trip included spending some time at a elephant sanctuary - so I thought this would be an appropriate image to use.

It is, of course, Sheena Douglass' Marching Elephants from her Taste of India collection. I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir markers: Elephant - IG3, 4, 5, 7; Ground - IG1, 2; Cover - FS2, 3, 4 & GT1, 2, 3; Tusks - TN1, EB1,2. I added a little sparkle with Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle pen. 

I then embossed teal card from Papermill with the co-ordinating folder, and then swiped Pebeo Silver gilding wax over the top. The papers are from two different pads from The Works: the peach from the Pretty Pastels, and the teal stripe from the Vintage Chic.

The sentiment is from Crafter's Inspiration 6, stamped with Memento Gray Flannel. I finished it off with ribbon and Hobby House flowers.
