Hey there, it's Wednesday once again and time to enter my card into this weeks Peachy Keen Challenge which is colour inspiration :) I have always been fascinated with the patterns on peacock feathers, they are so beautiful!
Immediately I figured I'd use an elephant taking care of the grey, and following suit with my card base in the same colour, although it is barely noticeable in the pic, on my screen anyway. Once again all papers are from my scrap stash, (I have so much of it) but I do know the solid papers except for the navy and grey card base were from recollections 8.5X11 sheets. The designer papers are old pieces I've had for about three yrs.
I originally made an elephant from the New Arrival cart and using the Pk stamp set to match, then at the last minute I decided to use my Happy Go Lucky Elephant from the Cottage Cutz spring collection, it's so adorable and I hadn't used it yet. The clock and sentiment are from the PKSC-04 April stamp kit of the month and the Happy Birthday strip was cut with a MS jumbo punch. The turquoise doily was made using a Fiskars round doily punch and I backed it with a 4" doily from the $ store. My sentiment is stamped on a really pretty piece of purple paper but on my screen it looks kind of washed out, I sure hope it looks better on yours lol!
The elephant was cut out twice, popped up off the doilies and his ears and trunk are popped up off the first elephant so I could hang the clock from his trunk.
I even made him a hat using the same stamp set and glued on a piece of a cotton ball for the pom pom but I think he looks cuter without it, what do you think? It is green with navy spots, but they looks black!
I am so glad you dropped by to check out my post today and hope you like my card. It think it would make a cute invitation as well as a bday card, what do you think? Well I am just getting this posted with less than and hr to spare so I need to get it linked up. I love to read your comments and appreciate them so much, ty! Big inky hugs and happy scrappin'
