Ellie Thanks

I love this funky elephant stamp, and if I was an elephant I wouldn't want to be grey!

I coloured the background using cheap iridescent watercolours from the dollar shop in shades of blue.I love how the texture of the card shows (it is ordinary card not watercolour) and I was surprised to see the iridescence show up well in the photos (click on pic for closeup).
I stamped the sentiment and elephant on the card, then onto a piece of patterned paper and cut it out (paper piecing). You look gorgeous Ellie!
