Take Pride Card

   I just LOVE elephants, especially baby ones, so I stamped some on this card that I made for my sons' last day of school! He's 13 and going into 8th grade, so I thought this image was perfect for him, showing the baby elephant, and the adult elephant, which he's turning into. A little adult that is, not an an elephant. Lol!

      To color the background, I used my blending tool and Distress Inks onto white cardstock. Then I dipped a brush in water to make streaks in the sky. To make the sun, I simply inked yellow around a white circle, and stamped the sentiment inside, using the Take Pride stamp set from Red Rubber Designs, which also includes the elephants. I stamped the big elephant onto grey paper, and used a white Sakura Souffle pen for his tusks and nails. Then I  fussy-cut him out of the grass he was on, so I could create a longer border of grass with the Mountain Scenery stamp. To give it an African feel, I hand-stitched the black zigzag border onto some burlap where I frayed the ends.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
