Whimsy stamping tryout
This little pink elephant represents my entry for the Whimsy design team. I originally heard about the call through The Card Universe and the link to the call can be found here:

I used Bazzill cardstock, the elephant image is Stampendous and stamped on plain white cardstock with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black soot and colored in with my Mulberry and Violet Prismacolor pencils. I placed it on a piece of Making Memories paper (from the (Sydney) line) and cut by my Fiskars Threading Water punch.
I stamped the enjoy sentiment using a Hero Arts clear acrylic stamp (from the ClearDesign: Tree, Birds And Messages sheet) with the black soot ink.
I embellished the whole thing with a paper flower that I had in my embellishment drawer and I adhered the petals together to let it stand up and made the middle glittery (a critical component!) with a dot of Goldenrod Stickles.
I plan on giving this card to someone with a baked good--to be a bit neighborly. Yum!
Pardon the lighting and angle of the photo. My camera isn't being cooperative (need a firmware update), so I had to use the cellphone. Eeek!
