Cardabilities Sketch #2

I've always found elephants to be very endearing...they're so cute despite their size and they always seem to be full of love..all cuddly and in the cartoons..Barbar..and even the elephant siblings, Alice Snuffleupagus and Aloysius Snuffleupagus in Sesame Street! Gosh, I must be watching too many kids programmes *lol* :P

I drew inspiration from elephants for my take on Cardabilities Sketch #2, which was as much fun as their first reveal! ;) Do check out HERE for more details and designs by the DT!

The lovely sketch and my take on it,

Materials Used:

Anita's Essential Paper Stack in A5
TheCuttingCafe Frame Shape
Moof Black Trim
White Trim
Squigglefly Elephant Digital Stamp
All Night Media Black Ink
Ranger Distress Inks
MM Stamp
MS Butterfly Punch
Beige Ribbon
Leaf Punch

I layered the cardstock with two different patterned paper by Anita. Then, I distressed the edges with All Night Media's Black Ink and did the same for the frame shape but used Ranger Distress Inks. Coloured my elephant using copics, put some punched leaves around him and added the trims.

This sketch was real good fun! Try it!
