Here's my design featuring an image from Marching Elephant



 I stamped the elephant  image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and stamped it two more times on design papers - including Sheena's A Little Bit Oriental - Papercrafting Collection - Luxury Designer Paper Pad



I cut out the pieces, edged them with a black water based marker, and added some detail with a white gel pen, paint, and Spectrum Noir blendable colored pencils  (050, 051, 118). 


After everything dried, I assembled all the pieces and layers. I used Spectrum Noir blendable colored pencils (114, 118) to give a little shading to his tusks, tail, and grounding on the white base piece.


Crafter's Companion has had several new releases. For more ideas, be sure to pop over to the Crafter's Companion Information Blog, as well as visit the blogs listed above. Leave comments for a chance to win!

Thank you for visiting!!

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

Thank you for sharing your technique for this beautiful card! If you had not told me I never would have known how many layers you had on it. I also adore what you did with the tiger from this same line - super creative!
