I have used a piece of Kaisercraft dp for the backing of this card and sponged the edges with a green ink. I have used a scrap of crochet lace to accent the word Papillon, and then added a vellum butterfly which I diecut from a scrap of vellum, ran it through my 'bug with a texture folder and added some liquid pearls for the body.

Ellie the elephant

I printed a gorgeous doodle pattern from the web, sorry I have lost the designer's name to give credit to.
I have coloured in with a mixture of copics, promarkers, sakura glaze pens, and added a few highlights with a wink of stella pen.
The card design is one from the Cardmaking Paradise site (link is on my sidebar) and I cut it out with my cameo. The ear is raised a little with a faom square.

Summer Colours

I had some spare time this morning, so made this card which qualifies for several challenges.
The background is randomly stamped with assorted circle stamps from Stampin Up. I used DI in scattered straw, spun sugar, and evergreen bough. The main image is an old Stampendous one which I stamped onto a snippet from my scrap box, coloured with Sakura Jellyroll glaze pens, and then trimmed it a bit smaller using a scalloped rectangle die. I edged it with a black sharpie, and also lightly coloured the card background with pink chalk.
