So this card was inspired by the book I just finished reading called Water for Elephants. I know I might sound a wee bit obsessed but it was a great book and it gave me a great excuse to use my new SideShow Elephant stamp. I first stumbled upon Sideshow stamp's site through Sarah Moore's blog. She has a link to their store and when I took a peak I just knew I had to get my hands on some of these images. I was instantly drawn to the elephant. I think he is too cute. I mean who doesn't like elephants? I ordered a few more stamps which I will share with you soon. The elephant was colored in with prismacolors and rhinestones were added to his back piece. The card stock is SU Chocolate Chip, Real Red, River Rock, Old Olive, Whisper White, and Basic Grey DP. I tried to make the back panel look like a Moroccan column. I used decorative scissors on the outer layer to create the effect. The left over side pieces were used as photo corners. Accessories used are cuttlebug embossing folder, SU brads, SU twill and copper cord, and SU paper piercer mat. The sentiment is from MFT.
PS I was asked by a fellow stamper if I had any other suggestions for a new summer read. I have a few I would love to recommend. I really enjoyed East of Eden by John Steinbeck and Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides.
