Are you as shocked as I that it is April? Whoa. I am certainly thankful for the spring weather coming through and to finally come out of hibernation! This cold was a serious downer for me this year, and after much planning and strategizing, I truly believe I won't have to go through that again. If you live in Texas, near Waco, give me a shout...I believe that is where my husband and I will be relocating later this summer.
So, I know you didn't come here to hear about my moving plans, although I would love to find crafty gals in that area, I have a card to share. The latest Virginia's View Challenge is all about Layers and Dimension. These little elephant stamps from Wplus9 just had to be inked up and colored, so I got super inky for this.
I started by taking a piece of watercolor paper, and adding Ranger Distress Inks and lots of water. I dried it in between layers, and smooshed it onto the color on my craft sheet. I then heat embossed my sentiment and adhered the panel to a card base. I die cut a fun frame by Paper Smooches, and popped it up using foam tape.
For the elephants, I went from top to bottom, and masked off their feet as I went down, stacking them on top of each other. I colored them with Copic Markers, added detail with a white gel pen, and then fussy cut them out, and adhered the stack to the side of the frame.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
