AAA Cards

Hello...
I hope you are well...

Today I'm playing along with the challenge over at AAA Cards...


...Where the challenge is blending and here's my card


I pulled out a few distress inks along with some dies and blended twisted citron and blueprint inks on the leaves and hickory smoke for the little elephant... 


 My blog friend Diane sent me a cute elephant die and here I used the negative part to sponge ink through then took a black pen to add a few lines around his ears and for his eye



I don't know what it's like where you are but here we've had so much rain and it's very dark... The sun put in an appearance for 10 minutes and it was lovely but I think that's it for the rest of the day...

Thanks for looking in - Take care

Oh, my gosh, so cute! What a darling way to use the elephant die, and your leaves are just gorgeous! Love the blended color combo on them, and adding the bird is perfect!

Too gorgeously cute! Love your colours for the leaves, such a wonderful contrast to the grey of that appealing little elephant. Thanks for playing along at AAA Cards.

Amazing blending and such a fabulous design. The cutest of elephant and love how you've coloured it through the negative of the die. Those leaves are stunning and gorgeous scale against the little elephant. Perfect sentiment too x Yes miserable weather our end too x

OH how very cute!! I love your beautiful blending and of course how you used the negative for the little elephant! Of course the colors are pretty as well..and I am happy you are having fun with the elephant!
We had rain one day almost 8", then everyday for a week at least 2" more each day. Today is the first day it hasn't rained in a week and a half. We needed it though (but not quite that much at one time)..today is nice and sunny!

Gorgeous Ros. Love the multi-coloured fern leaves, so beautiful. Sweet little elephant too. hugs :)

Barbara said...

Beautiful ferns, both the coloring and how you gave them dimension. As for the weather: Monday was 17°, then up to 30 on Tuesday and up, up, up ever since. There's never a "normal", it seems, either it's unseasonably cold or hot as hell...
