When my oldest was a toddler, he was completely obsessed with elephants. Completely. Sixteen plus years later, I am still drawn to elephants. It isn't hard to understand why I find this Cute Elephant so appealing! It's an elephant that looks like Horton and is adorn with flowers and hearts....I think I am in love!
My background was created using a gelli plate, a variety of inks and a few stencils. After making several different prints, I cut them apart and blocked them for a patchwork-ish background. It adds interest to an otherwise pretty simple creation. I colored Cute Elephant with copic markers and cut out using the Out of the Box technique. My final step was to add the Happy Birthday sentiment from the new You Are The Beast sheet.
Have a great day! And, don't forget to be awesome!
