Elephant Walk (by Magda)

As you know Magda joined the Design Team earlier this month and I thought it was about time you knew a little more about her. I put the usual questions I always ask new DT members so here goes.

What what were your first Chocolate Baroque stamps?
I remember that it was a parcel with several stamps : Peacock set, Indian Elephant, Texture Fragments,Serenity and Tranquillity set

What style of stamping do you prefer?
It is quite difficult to say which style of stamps I prefer. Chocolate Baroque stamps are very inviting and it is always a challenge with myself to see the final result of style.

What stamps are on your wishlist?
There are a lot of items  signed in my list, here  just some of them: Floribunda Net Individual, Another Brick in the Walled, Sketchy Doodle Flowers, Sunburst Scenes, Music Fanfare

Can you tell us in one sentence what crafting means to you
I would love to stay all the day in my craft room with ideas to put on paper, using several colours, stamps etc.,  fortunately I have found a good balance between my “world” up stairs, the one down stairs and the one outside.

And now here is Magda's latest project for you using a combination of stamps.

Elephant Walk

Thinking about a Catwalk I named my project “Elephant Walk”. It is easy and nice to realise , even if it is twice to do, one time on the envelope and the second time on the card.

  1. Colour the upper part with Distress Inkpad Tumbled Glass for the sky, leaving some white spaces as clouds
  2. Use Distress Inkpad  Peeled Paint for the grass.
  3. Stamp with Archival black on the left side of the envelope and on the right side of the card one elephant of Indian Elephant.
  4. Stamp with Archival black the grass and the plants of Floral Edges.
  5. Stamp with Archival black the birds of Landscape Edges clear stamp set
  6. Colour the Elephants with Faber-Castell Pencils.
  7. Close the envelope and trim its right side to insert the car.
  8. Punch a half hole in the middle of the right side of the envelope.
  9. Stamp the sentiment that you like on the card and glue a ribbon on the right side to pull it out from the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by
