Magical Tree & Indian Elephant (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have two card designs today using Indian Elephant.  We've had so much fun with the gorgeous Indian theme designs.

In this first design I used the 'magical' flower tree along with a leaf from the Tangled Garden set.  


I coloured the main image & leaves with Prisma Pencils and added glitter, rhinestones & a large 'gem'.   I edged the mats with a gold leaf pen.

And on this next card below I used the Elephant from the Indian Elephant set. 



The background is the beautiful design from the printable download - Leafy Brocade.      Using the colours of the background as my guide, I coloured the image with Prisma Pencils.  I blended a little Distress Ink around the parameter matching the green in the corner of the printed paper.    Again I added glitter, rhinestones & a large 'gem' charm.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  1. The way you added the green sponging around the edge of the elephant panel just draws out the green in the background paper beautifully PLUS the aqua in the elephants saddle cloth. With your lovely gem hanging like that I can just imagine a whole series of just those gems hanging along the edge of the saddle cloth too. A really super idea.
    As for your first - the gold leaf edging just brings real decadence to the whole & picks up the golden mount of the jewel. The colours are beautiful & very atmospheric & I absolutely love the way you decoupaged the little flower.
