Welcome Baby Elephant Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #167)

Hi everyone! :o)

Yesterday, a new challenge has started over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is... well better to say are, #167, Mother + Daughter, Father + Son, Mother + Son, Father + Daughter. Pick any theme or themes you like, create something as a couple (with your parent or kid) or create something using matching image. :o)

This time our lucky winner will win this adorable clear stamp.

I went with Mother + Son or Father + Son theme and made this Welcome Baby Elephant Card.

First I made a background paper. I used various baby themed stamps and heart stamps and stamped them randomly on a white watercolor paper panel with Distress Ink Iced Spruce.

Next up was an image. I used ADORABLE Elephants image from Paper Smooches 'A Little Lovin' stamp set. I stamped the image on a thick watercolor paper and colored elephants with Distress Inks in watercolor technique. After drying, I fussy cut elephants leaving white border around them.

Lastly, I worked on a sentiment. I stamped the sentiment from the set on the panel in black and shaded letters with grey fine liner.

I love dimension on my cards. I glued 2 mm thick foam square on the back of the panel and glued it on a top folded card base. I also glued foams on the back of elephants and glued them on card.

As a finishing touch I highlighted elephants and the sentiment with white gel pen and embellished the card with blue enamel dots.

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 89 mm (3.5" x 3.5")
