Elephant Love

Hey everyone.
Hope you're all enjoying the weekend.
I finally got some time in  my craft room this morning
and inked up my new Wplus9 elephants.


 I am not great at colouring, so these elephants scared me a little.
In the end, I kept it pretty simple, using shades of grey for outlining,
and adding a few dots on ellie's head.
The balloon took me forever - I kept going back to it and adding more colour,
then taking it away again!! 
It's something I definitely need to practice.


Challenges.
Allsorts - Spring Is In The Air  - The green and yellow combo says spring to me and, irl, the background paper is much more yellow than the camera pics up. Check out my Instagram for a better picture!
Cute Card Thursday - Die Cuts and Punches. The dies for this set of stamps are the outline type, which makes them really easy to place and cut.

Supplies.
WPlus9 Unforgettable, coloured with Copics.
Digi Paper - Pink Petticoat, Little Big Dots.
Watercolours for the background.  Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle Nestie Dies.
Sequins.

So cute! I admire your talent making simple cards. It is one of my biggest struggles--I just don't know when to stop adding embellishments LOL.
