Thanks a Ton!

Hi Everyone,

 I am playing with the Your Next Stamp challenge, combining the color and sketch challenge (see pictures below). I love their stamps - they are so cute without being cutesy. The set I am using here is called Jungle Critters 2
I am always in need of thank you cards.......


I stamped teh elephant onto shimmer paper, colored it with Copics and fuzzy cut him The eyes and toenails I accented with liquid enamel. the background I sponged onto watercolor paper using distress inks and then splattered water droplets on it. It does not show that well. I'm not sure what I did srong here - maybe its the paper???? The dark blue side strip I embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. 
On the picture below you can see the shimmer of the elephant a little better:




Added Bakers twine.
