Ellie the Elephant by Brenda

Hello Peeps, Brenda here with another selection of my artwork from Lesley's Hochanda shows which featured the beautiful Eastern inspired stamps.

The Elephant shaped card above was cut from a mask I purchased a long while ago to make cards for our youngest Granddaughter who loves anything related to Elephants, she treasures a small pink Elephant she had as a baby named must be the most travelled Elephant ever as it goes everywhere with her. 

I stencilled the background with Silhouette Palace 1, stamped the Elephant from Indian Elephant and coloured in with pencils, then stamped using Distress Markers direct to stamp flowers from Indian Elephant and Indian Textiles, cut them out and fixed across the top of the Elephant and added some pearl strings.

Here I have used the large Elephant from Paisley Elephant which I stamped and then masked so I could stamp the background with the script stamp from the same stamp set. After removing the mask I coloured the image with sparkle pens and randomly stamped around the edges with Natures Paisley. Finally I added some gold lace to the bottom, gold pearls to the Elephant and mounted into corrugated to which I had added some gold embossing.

I have to confess to really linking the Palace on the Indian Textiles stamp set, this time I used Versafine Toffee and stamped onto cream card which I first stamped with the script from Natures Paisley and added some stencilling using Silhouette Palace 1 using a sponge from which I dabbed off most of the the ink to achieve a soft finish. Then I used the edge of the border stamp from Indian Textiles across the top.

Myself and the team always appreciate your visits and kind comments.

  4. Three brilliant pieces of work Brenda. I adore the elephant on an elephant and some beautiful embellishments, and the gold embossed corrugated card looks great on the second, and the gold lace and pearls are such pretty touches to complement the prettily coloured and sparkly elephant. Last the fabulous silhouette palace with the stencilled ones done softly in the background looks great, and love the caramel coloured border along the top which complements the cream card perfectly. x

  5. Wow. all 3 of your creations are amazing. I love the colours you have used. I especially like the 3rd one the stencilled one, it would make an excellent picture to hang up. xx
