A Sweet Lil' Elephant


My Favorite Things Stamps hosted a fun challenge series, Camp Create. Today's card is for the third challenge, Watercolor Wonder.



Seriously, so glad I tried this. I feel like a true artist! This turned out cuter than I could have imagined. I stamped one of the elephants from Adorable Elephants onto watercolored paper with light gray ink, then watercolored him in with zig markers and water.



I then added a wash of green for the grass and blue for the sky, and of course, had to add some splatters in each color. I then decided he needed a balloon, so I stamped that in gray as well and watercolored it in purple. I then stamped the sentiment, also from Adorable Elephants. I went simple with the card so the watercolored panel was affixed to a light green card base.
