Greetings to my cyber visitors - it is beginning to look as though this blog is a case of feast or famine!! I seemed not to be able to get to the computer last week, and this week I have the computer with me, but I am away from home and quite busy with my DD and Granddaughter. Not that I mind that.
I made this card shortly before I left home - it is basically quite a simple card, but because of the busy background paper, I would not call it a "clean and simple" card.
The elephant image is from the Layers of Color Polka Dot Parade set of stamps. I stamped it onto watercolour paper (hence the slightly thickened edges to the image as the paper absorbed the ink rapidly) with Memento tuxedo black ink, and painted it with watercolour crayons.
I then cut the image out using my nestabilities classic ovals (petite #5), embossed it and sponged ink onto the top and bottom of the image before removing the die, then mounted it onto a yellow scalloped oval.
The card base was a lovely bright yellow card, the origins of which I do not know, over which I layered some some Warehouse (think Michaels in USA) design paper. I stamped and embossed the greeting (from Kiwistamping) in gold, mounted the feature panel and it was complete.
A lovely bright card for a child's birthday done in about 30 minutes!
