Eddie Elephant

Hello once again - it is still cold and stormy here, so I thought I would brighten my day with this cheerful character from McMahon Vintage Digital, who looks as though he has riden off the pages of a vintage children's book.

I thought this would be ideal for a child's birthday card, so I coloured the image with watercolour crayons.

I then mounted the image on a maroon base, added double sided sellotape and then glitter.... now I remember why I don't use this technique often, there is still glitter glittering in unexpected places!!

I also used the glitter on the corner pieces, embossed a greeting and added three gold rhinestones for added sparkle.

In this final photograph I have tried to capture (not very sucessfully) the intensity of the glitter.

May your day be blessed.
