Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great theme for us. This week also sees us welcoming our new 2019 Design Team members. Sadly, we said goodbye to Jan, Eliz and Annie at the end of 2018. Joining us this week are Su Mohr and Wanda Cullen. Welcome Su and Wanda, it's wonderful to have you join us.
Here's Ann's theme challenge:
Looking through my new catalog of stamps, I had created a category called "animals". So, finding the right stamp was a breeze and I decided this wonderful elephant from Katzelkraft's Les Jungles would be perfect. He's such a forlorn looking elephant and I have used him in the past for birthday cards, but thought he would be perfect as a "miss you" critter.
I stamped him onto Neenah Solar White #80 card stock and colored him with my Copic Markers. This was another really easy card to put together, with minimal coloring required. However, I did have fun coloring him - he just makes me smile every time I see him:-)
Here's a closeup of the coloring:
Told you it was simple coloring. The artists shade marks make it really easy to add shading. The "hardest" part was creating the grass for him!
I stamped the sentiment and then adhered the 80# layer to a 110# card base. Easy, peezy!
Here's my critter:
I hope you will join us and play along this week. We would love to see your critters in the gallery.
I'll be back with another card tomorrow. Yes... that would be my 4th post in 3 days!!!! :-). In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
