Wish BIG

Hi there!

I was instantly inspired by the photo Lisa provided at Just us girls this week ! Elephants remind me so much of my home country, South-Africa, so I had to play along!

Don't you think the colors in the inspiration photo are amazing?  I used distress oxides to create a smooshed watercolor background and then stamped the abstract triangle background over it. LOVE the contrast!

I used :

  • Simon Says Stamps ~ Abstract triangles
  • Distress Oxide inks as shown in photo above
  • Elephant cutting file from the Silhouette store  #76731
  • My own sentiment (shared below)
  • Craft foam for dimension

Challenges :

Thanks for visiting me today!

This is beautiful, Hannelie! It fascinates me how you can craft such a CAS card with all the white and it makes a perfect African elephant card. I'd probably go overboard and end up with a mess!
