Cute Elephant Card

Evening everyone,

I bought this cute Penny Black elephant stamp a little while ago now. I have stamped it and coloured it quite a few times but hadn't actually made any cards with it. My Gran has been unwell so thought that this would be the perfect stamp for a card to cheer her up.

I also wanted to enter the "favourite colour" challenge over at the Crafting Cafe group on facebook. My favourite colour is purple, but when I looked at my stash I realised I actually have very few purple papers so struggled a bit. So I decided to do a bit of recycling - the dark purple is from a cereal box, but I loved the colour so much I couldn't just throw it away!

To colour in the image I used copics and promarkers:

C1, C3, C5, pale pink for the elephant
B32 for the butterfly
Gold, Canary for the middles of the daisies

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Mad for Markers - Anything goes
Divas by Design - Anything goes

Thanks for looking.
