Feeling Flat!


Hi everyone, a friend said she had been feeling a bit flat lately so I thought this would be the perfect card for her lol!

I've stamped the elephant and sentiment in versafine Clair nocturne ink and clear embossed
them. I used prismacolour pencils for colouring and shading and blended them with zest it and a paper stump.

They are both from Katzelktaft Les jungles and Relax. There are no dates on the stamps but I've had both sets for a couple of years.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
Retro Rubber, where it's anything goes as long as you use a stamp that's at least one year old.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where it's animal antics.

Word Art Wednesday, anything goes with an encouraging or uplifting sentiment.

Katzelkraft Les Jungles and Relax stamps, versafine clair nocturne ink & clear ep; prismacolour pencils; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die.

Thanks for visiting,

I can think of many times I wish I'd had a card like this! Love the way you'v used the bright green mat for a lift and to suggest there's light at the end of the tunnel! The soft grey ground is perfect. Thanks for joining with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
