BBTB2 - Elephants
Happy Monday everyone, oh boy do we ever have a fun fun challenge for you this week, it is being hosted by the wonderful Shelly, please stop by her blog and give her a heads up! Also we would love for you to visit the rest of us today as we share elephants with you. Please remember that the focus cut must be done with the Cricut, rules are posted at the top of the BBTB2 Challenge Blog. Looking forward to seeing your creations.
Now onto my "hefferlump", lol. This is a 6"X6" card, the background paper is by "Liz King" for EKSuccess entitled "Grass Natural". The wonderful Elephant is from Cricut Cart "Animal Kingdom" and the trees were cut from "Dreams Come True". The safari hats, grass and "Majesty" were cut with the Silhouette. After I did the hats for photo corners I could not resist giving the elephant one, lol. All colors were done with Copic Markers. The wrinkling on the Elephants body was done with a clear stamp "journal edge".
I so love these magnificent beasts, they are truly of Majesty. I follow a couple of "Elephant Sanctuarys"" and have posted one of my favs, it is over 2500 acres in Tennessee, their facilities are commendable by anyones standards. They take in rescue, elderly and ailing Elephants to live out their lives in peace, gentleness and loving care, WOW. So if you have an extra moment please click on the link below and visit some of these marvelous creatures.
Well that's it for me today, have a safe, happy and cool week. Hugs
