Just a note:)


I brought this elephant stamp from High Hopes last year and I rediscovered it! A few days ago I spotted a card that featured an elephant holding a tray of cupcakes....it was so cute! Anyhow....all kind of ideas ran through my head and I remembered my elephant stamp. I immediately went to work and made a template to support my idea. The rose printed paper is from my stash. The pink cardstock is SU's Pretty in Pink and the white cardstock is Solar White from Ellen Hutson's. I stamped my image twice, trimmed the second image and layered onto the first image with pop dots. The inks are StazOn Black and Copic Markers. The ribbon is SU's Pretty in Pink and the rose is from Michael's. The dew drops are from Ellen Hutson's. The sentiment is from Elzybells. I also used Crystal Stickles as an embellishment.
I'm OK with the results, but when I return to my scrap area I'm going to make adjustments. I'm not going to trim the area between the ears...and I'm not going to trim the second image too closely either! Each time I tried clean these areas up..I made a bigger mess! I learned a lesson with this one:)
Thank you for stopping by!

Oh my gosh this is so cute I am smiling from ear to ear. All I can think of is the verve visual soon to be released single that talks about toe shoes and tutu's. While that saying would be so cute with the little ballerina they also have, it would be a stitch with this one! LOL! I think I will go to High Hopes (I just received my first order from them not long ago) and start this little elephants journey my way. I hope she is still available. You did such a beautiful job putting her together that you sold me on first glance!!
