Deedee’s September DOM

It’s that time again, the start of the new challenge at Deedee’s Digis. This time Deedee has come up with a cute autumn elephant.

Materials used:SAM_1992(watermarked)
Deedee’s Digi DOM – Leaf Your Cares Behind
white A5 card blank
blending card
light brown and dark brown card
leaf punches
Brushos in autumnal colours
watercolour card
Spray and Shine
Copic pens

I printed out the image three times along with the sentiment, one of the images I printed onto watercolour paper. I coloured two elephants using copics and cut them out. The base image I coloured with Brushos and then sprayed with Spray and Shine before cutting it out. I punched some leaves from the left over bits of brusho coloured paper. I attached one complete elephant image over the one on the base image and just the head from the final image on top to give a 3d effect. I matted and layered my topper and sentiment onto the two shades of brown card then attached them to the card front. Finally I added my punched out leaves.

I am ashamed to say it has been ages since I last had a play with the brushos but I am glad I did! It is amazing how many different colour appear when the crystals are sprayed with water, artistic alchemy!

Thank you for dropping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
