An Elephant and Some Polka Dots

Hello and thanks for visiting!
I spent some time coloring with my new Zig clean color brush pens over the weekend, and this cutie from Whimsy Stamps (Springtime Elephant) was one of the things I colored up! 

I started out by first heat embossing the image using white embossing powder. I am no expert at water coloring, but definitely having fun with these pens. Love my copics and pencils but it's always fun to switch up coloring mediums so I am very happy that I got these!

The card is pretty CAS, after water coloring, I simply trimmed the edges and mounted onto melon mambo card stock then onto the designer paper. Sewed the edges before adhering it all onto the soft sky card base. The sentiment, also from Whimsy stamps (Everyday Moments), was also heat embossed with white embossing powder, and I added some more watercolor around the sentiment. 


This card is now also listed in my Etsy shop.

I am playing along here:

Hope you're having a wonderful day with plenty of sunshine! Summery warm over here, but a thunderstorm is supposed to move in. Hope it won't be too bad!
