Clean and Simple Bella Elephant

Hey folks!

I gotta be honest, after seeing all of the AH-mazing things my fellow Butterfly Ink-ers have done this last week, I feel like a total slacker with this card. For real though, all I could think when I saw this Stamp was she simply needed to be colored. Nothing fancy schmancy, end of discussion. Can I seriously just pick her up and hug her?

I stamped Bella and Daisy from Wild Rose Stamps on some Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. Also, the Bella and Posy Stamp would also be so cute!

My color palette was simple. I used Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Hickory Smoke, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Ground Espresso. Last week, I showed where instead of building up color, I started with a lot and pulled up what I didn't want, this card is the opposite. I started light and built up color where I wanted it.

I used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die on the Panel and skipped embellishments with the exception of some Clear Wink of Stella on the highlights of the Daisy and Ranger Glossy Accents on the center of the Daisy.

That's it! I hope you enjoyed my card today. Be sure to stop in at the Butterfly Reflections Ink Shop and get your Lawn Fawn Pre-Order done. Must. Have. All the Lawn Fawn! As always, come back tomorrow for more inspiration...

Until next time!
