This card was made using a lovely little stamp called, 'Are we there yet' by Little Claire's Designs.
I thought it might just fit in with this week's Promarkers Challenge - Animal Crackers.
I made the background using the Letraset Letrajet Airbrushing System again. The sky was airbrushed using a Sky Blue Promarker and I masked out some little clouds with a new product I found on E-bay, called 'Mask It.' It's a see through low tack paper so you can see exactly where you have put the masks and you can use the same mask several times too. I really like it as I am always losing my masks and it's easier to keep them now they are sticky.
The background hills were airbrushed with Apricot Promarker and the foreground with Marsh Green Promarker. I used torn paper masks to make the hills while I was airbrushing the hills and foreground. The Accacia tree and the birds are stamps from Barbara Gray and the grasses were also made using a couple of her little stamps. I used Marsh Green Promarker and Forest Green Promarker to stamp the grasses and the trees, elephants and birds were stamped with Black Memento.
I stamped the little family group of elephants out on plain white card and coloured them with Promarkers, Ice Grey1 and Warm Grey 2 with the little flower being Cocktail Pink. I then cut them out and stuck them into the foreground of the card and added a little shadow with Ice Grey1 under their feet.
The card reminded me of one of the many elephant photograph I took in Tanzania in 2009 and has brought back some happy memories.
I thought you might like to see the photograph too.
This was part of a really large group of elephants which passed in front of us -they were so beautiful and I just adore elephants!
