Artfully Inkables Friday


So I have some exciting news to share with you today. Remember the design team call for Starving Artistamp? Well I applied and I got an email earlier this week telling me that I was accepted as a new DT member!! I am so excited and grateful for this awesome opportunity. So today I have a Artfully Inkables from Starving Artist card I want to share with you. It features the cutest and sweetest elephant EVA! Aside from penguins I also have a "thing" for elephants. They are always the first two animals I visit at the zoo. I colored her in with my prisma colors and gamsol. I matted her on Chocolate Chip and River Rock card stock. I distressed all the edges with my scissors. The animal print background and the sentiment are also from SA. Other card stock used is SU Real Rust and Old Olive. Accessories are SU brads, twill, and copper cord. The layout is from this week's SCS Sketch challenge. Well that is all for you today but tomorrow I have another Artfully Inkables card to share so make sure to check back. Have a great weekend. Ana
