Silhouette Elephant Paisley

Hello my crafting friends, its time for challenge 13 over at  so I do hope you will come and join in the fun. We have 3 fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

 Fabulous prizes on offer from our wonderful sponsors.

 Prize ~ 7 free digis

Prize ~ $10 digi shop credit

Prize ~ $12 Gift Certificate

My card was made from a beautiful Silhouette digi from Bugaboo Stamps  as soon as I saw this image I thought of all the wonderful China Elephants we had around certain cities a couple of years ago so I chose this one to colour in using lots of different colours. 

I started by printing off the Elephant digi three times and coloured in each one the same using Spectrum Noir pens, I then started to cut into two of the Elephants so I could decoupage her. The bottom layer was the whole Elephant, the second layer I cut off the two legs from behind then the third layer I just had the head and ears, the tail was kept from the bottom layer,  after colouring each one I pasted them with glaze to add the shine. I stuck these together using foam pads.

My base card was made from Black card matted and layered with White card then more Black card. The top layer I embossed with the Mandala Embossing Folder, I used some glitter glue round the edges of each of the embossed flowers then placed the finished Elephant in the center of my card. 

For my sentiment I made a small tag using  basic tags die, White card and Teal card, I stamped the sentiment onto the White part of the tag and attached it to the Elephants tail which I thought looked rather cute!

There you have the finished card, dimensions are 7"X5".

  15. Hi Jacquie,
    oh this is so superb, and lovely.
    wonderful designing.
    When you first mentioned about cutting off different part of the elephant I got quite scared as I thought you be add up for harming a stamp if there is such a thing. lol.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
