Inkspirational Elly-phant and CTS Thanks

Hi there It is soooo hot today and I was back at work too which was great! Ok I got busy last night and completed FOUR challenge entries so this will be a long one as I wedge 2 in one post. I tried a new challenge site – Inkspirational that was suggested to me and this week they had a sketch challenge.


And here is what I did with it! I was demonstrating using the  blender pen method to make a  multicoloured image and made this cute wee elephant which was perfect for what I had in mind. Simple but very cute.

I used my new Everything Eleanor stamp set and also a leaf and bird for one of the upcoming Sale-A-Bration stamp sets. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. My Paper Piercing templates and piercer are getting a real work out lately Going around the oval is a bit of a challenge but I found by moving the Christmas Ornaments template around  I was able to get a fairly good piercing line.

Sorry the photos arent up to much we had a power cut earlier tonight so had to take the photo inside when the power came back on after dark : )
