Laugh a little

And sometimes you need to laugh a lot! In making this card, I enjoyed combining metal dies and the Whimsy Blending Brushes to create this soft and colorful scene. The background was created using the elephant foot then I used ink to color it blue and green. Lately, I’ve been making all of my cards from white cardstock and then adding the color later. It’s a great way to utilize all those dies but also to make sure the colors match throughout the project. So in this case, that blue I used in the background was also used for the sky. Lastly when I colored the Happy Elephant, I made sure to give it lots of wrinkles around the face.
