Feature A Creature!

Hello Everybody (-:   Today I'm playing along with a new challenge I am so happy to have found!  It's a monthly Penny Black Challenge and this month it is: Feature A Creature.  I love all living creatures, so this was a must for me.  For this 4-3/4 x 4-3/4" square card I stamped the elephant in gray repeatedly with a MISTI so it would be nice and rich.  Once dry, I did a dry emboss technique I saw Jennifer McGuire use.  Here is the link to that technique:  7 Ways of Using Coordinating Dies Creatively.  I really liked the detail this added so that I could keep this card clean and simple.  I stamped the other elements and sentiment and it was essentially finished.  I did not have matching card stock so I used some white card stock and rubbed the gray ink directly from the ink pad.  I cut it slightly larger than the panel and adhered all to the card base.  This card really used a minimal amount of supplies and I liked that a lot.  Thank you for reading this and the materials used are listed below.

Materials Used:
  • Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies, My Favorite Things, Beautiful Baby
  • Inks, Elephant- Hero Arts Soft Granite, Stars and Sentiment- Distress Oxide Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron
  • Neenah White Card Stock
