Claritystamp new design club lookback – elephants #105

Welcome to my crafty blog and the next in my Sunday journey back through Claritystamp’s new design club. I’m now up to July 2015, which was this sweet elephant heart. I have to confess that I hadn’t used this stamp since I got it, but thought it would make a great wedding or engagement card.

I started with a piece of the ‘Indian Summer’ designer card (obviously appropriate as these could well be Asian elephants…!) and stamped the elephants in ‘watering can’ Archival ink. I then cut a mask from a sticky note to cover them up, so that I could sponge a little ‘black soot’ Distress Oxide’ around them to give the background more depth.

I then stamped the banners that co-ordinate with Clarity’s ‘letterbox’ stamps onto cream card and cut them out. I added ‘love’ onto the banners with the ‘letterbox alphabet’ stamps and glued them onto the designer card.

I mounted the designer card onto a piece of purple cardstock and then attached that to a 5×7 card blank. To finish, I stamped ‘congratulations’ from Clarity’s ‘essential sentiments’ set alongside the elephants.

Thanks for dropping in. I’m sharing this card over at TGIF challenges, as it was inspired by this week’s theme.
