Hello everyone. I hope you are all having awonderful day wherever you are. I am here today to share with you a conclusion of the month of sympathy before we will be back shortly to present a new and fun theme for you.
My last card for you this month is a card that can be used for sympathy as well as friendship and love. I love this elephant from the June My Monthly Hero kit. He is so adorable. I decided to use him with the sentiment from the May 2018 My Monthly Hero kit, because, as you know, an elephant never forgets the beautiful moments.
I also wanted to use the thorn tree die, but since I am on my summer vacation I didn’t have my die cutting tool with me. So…I needed to be creative. I used my die as a stamp in my stamp platform, raising the platform up using fun foam. My image was barely visible so I traced the image using a black pen and voila…the thorn tree could be used.
I colored the thorn tree and my elephant using copic markers and highlighted them with a white gel pen.
I cut my card panel to size using a stitched rectangle die and then ink blended my background using the following ink colors on white cardstock:
Grass: Green hills and Nest
Sky: Just rust, Orange Soda and Ultra pink
For the blending I used blending brushes to create an almost canvas-like texture.
I finished the card by scattering a few sequins on the card coordinating them to the color beneith.
Be sure to come back the 15th to see our new challenge.
Make yourself a lovely day.
