Making Due


Mother collects elephants but I don’t have a Christmas elephant stamp. I do have several elephant stamps though. This one is from Stampn’ Up.

I then took masking tape and taped off the areas I didn’t want.

After inking & stamping the image.

I drew on a santa hat to make it Christmasy.

I added color. I colored the elephant with gray water-color pencils (www.staedtler-usa.com) After coloring I blended the color using a water brush. I used Stampn’ Up markers to color in the red. I cut out my background paper from The Paper Studio Christmas Traditions paper pack.

 I cut out the elephant using Spellbinders Nestabilities scalloped circles. (If I would re-do this I would use pop dots to pop the elephant & scalloped circles).

 I stamped the inside & framed it in red & green. And with that Mom’s Christmas card is done.
