SCS Sketch Cards

YAH! I stamped!!! I'm feeling much better today...thank goodness! I mean, I still have this NASTY cough and I sound crappy but I FEEL good!
The sketch challenge on SCS is one that I can't really miss ;)
This elephant is adorable!!! It's definitely an image I will use for anything.
I stamped the image in Black Stazon and colour with PrismaPencils and Gamsol. I added stickles to the heart and to the butterfly. The ribbon is from May Arts and the Designer Paper is from Scenic Route. I think the rest is pretty straight forward.
A few months ago I had ordered a couple of stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms. This being one of them. It hadn't seen ink yet and I thought it went great with this Designer Paper I picked up last week. It's hard to tell in the picture but the little flowers are covered in glitter. It was such a pretty paper I could not pass it up!!
I stamped the image in Black Stazon onto Watercolour Paper. I used my Aqua painter to colour in with Soft Sky. The centers were lightly coloured with Barely Banana.
Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday! They must have helped!
Hope you all have a GREAT day and thanks for stopping by!
