Birthday Boy Elephant....

Well, I finally got a chance to finish up my blue elephant. I really am having fun coloring these. He is from Mo’s Digital Pencil and called I forgot

I used my Spectrum markers to color him. Then I used my die from Stampin’ Up to die cut the white. To make the blue layer I traced around the outside edge of the die and hand cut it. 

I took the scraps from the front and cut them into 4 3/8” x about 2”  rectangles then just cut down the center to make the waves. My templates haven’t arrived yet from Kiwi Lane. What a smart idea, wish I’d thought of it.

Then I inked around all the edges and drew the doodles to give it some pop. Stamped the birthday using Close to my heart and found buttons for the boy, well except for the y its a felt sticker. 

Hope you enjoyed your visit today. I’m so glad you stopped by. May you have a blessed day.  How about a fun drawing.......I will pick a name from the comments on this card and send you a surprise package. Nothing big just some happy mail. Check back on 19th to see who wins. This is open until 11:59 pm saturday the 18th.
