Little gray elephant

Magnolia stamps have some new additions to their line. This sweet little elephant is one of the new magnolia animals. The first time I saw this little fellow I fell in love with him.

I wanted to try my hand at creating a card all in gray but not have it look dreary. This little elephant seemed to be the perfect stamp for my self proclaimed challenge.

I stamped the image three times and cut out the head twice mounting the layers on foam tape. I think this make the little fellow look very welcoming with his message of "hello."

Card recipe ingredients:

Stamps: Magnolia (elephant) and Papertrey Ink (sentiment)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black
Designer Paper: Anna Griffin
Image coloring medium: Copic Markers
Accessories: Nestibilities hexagon dies, Sheer ribbon from Michaels, button from my stash, tiny pearls for eyes by Mark Richards pearls.

I think this elephant will make really cute children's cards. In fact, I know a little boy who might get a kick out of this little fellow.
