Edward Elephant Part 2

Today I made another card with the Edward Elephant image but this time it was made from the rubber set which compliments the digital version quite well. I can see especially where the sentiments would be interchangeable between the two sets. Both of these are from the Sparkle N Sprinkle line of stamps. The rubber set is called Edward Elephant St. Patrick's Day 1 #828.


I stamped the image onto white card stock with Mementos black ink and then colored it in with my small set of Copics. Once the scene was completed I die cut it with the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Borders die. I also cut a black panel and another light green panel with that same Memory Box die.

All of these layers were assembled and added to a base card of white card stock. The last thing I did was stamp the sentiment on white card stock with the black ink and then again added a spot of color to the shamrock. I fussy cut it out and to my way of thinking it sort of resembles a cloud in the sky. I also stamped a sentiment inside so that it is already for me to mail out.



This is another fun and very uplifting and cheery design and I know anyone who is on the receiving end of this will get a few smiles from it.

Well, another day is almost over and the week is speeding by so very fast. But it has been a good one so I am very thankful and am feeling so blessed. I hope your week is going well too. And thanks for the wonderful comments you always leave me.

God bless,
Verna
