It's Nellie & Ellie

Hello there,

I'm sharing another one of my CI samples with you today and this time it's the fabulous new elephant stamp.  All of the new stamps this time around were drawn by a talented young lady by the name of 'Ellie Mulligan' so Jean hardy decided that she would call this stamp 'Nellie & Ellie.'  I love how their trunks entwine, it's so sweet:

I started by creating a background with Brushos, then stamped out the lovely elephants before using white embossing powder.  To make the elephants stand out a little, I used a make up sponge with some Teal Zeal ink to highlight their bodies and this was the closest that I could find to match the background colour.  The small stamps that I've used in the background are also by Crafty Individuals.

Message for Magic Maggie

So please that you’ve had your first COVID vaccine.  I’m not in this round but hopefully I won’t have to wait too much longer as I can’t wait to spend time with my grandchildren.  Many thanks for your continued support.  Take care of yourself and stay safe x

Thank you for your visits today and I'll be back again on Thursday with my card for this month's Rudolf Days challenge, so until then, stay safe and take care of yourselves xx

youngster eh!!

Just think, when we've all been vaccinated we can go to the Craft fairs again. I have quite a big list of things I absolutely MUST have. I might even get some of these lovely Crafty Individuals stamps to play with - although I don't think I'll be as good as you. Speaking of Brushos, I got a sprinkleIT to try - and it IS really sparkle-y.
I thought of you just now watching look north because of the sky this morning - just like your friend had a little while ago.

Ellie and Nellie are gorgeous and love them white embossed and some pretty backgrounds stamping too, and love the blue and green Brushos you have used, together with a bit more darker greeny blue on the elephants themselves. A beautiful layered card Sandra! x
