I used the sketch, a couple theme elements & one technique option:
Theme Options: Cocktails / Elephants / Friendship
Product / Technique Options: Distress Ink/ Oxide / Ombre
I started out with a candy floss pink card base but skipped the other two colors (bubblegum & mulberry) from this month's color option. I masked off all but the upper left diagonal and blended taffy ink in an ombre fashion. Next, I stamped the newsprint using the same ink. Then I stamped the elephant on Lawn Fawn dotted paper, shaded with a C2 Copic & cut out. He's actually raising an umbrella on the stamp but I trimmed that part off and added the cocktail sticker in its place. Cut a strip of Pink & Main paper for the sketch element and to ground Mr. Ellie. Die cut the CHEERS twice and used the black layer as a shadow. Made the sentiment wonky since Mr. E has imbibed a few already - LOL.
I'm still waiting on a fabulous card from the amazing Joanne (Ambrosia & Iron) in the UK; sadly Royal Mail had some issues in January. When I rejoined the Card Chain back in 2020, Joanne was the first person I sent to - Feb 2020. Then she mailed a card to me in March 2020 and I'm looking forward to the day her January 2023 card arrives! **Update - rec'd it on February 13th and well worth the wait - so fun and colorful; thanks Joanne!!**
You have until February 6th to sign up for the February chain - go HERE for all the details.
Thanks for stopping and have a crafty day!!
