E is for Elephant

My entry for the Craft Barn challenge this week is a tag. The theme this week is animal which is handy since I have an outstanding alpha tag project that is yet unfinished and I needed to do something with an elephant. I have also been playing with a home decor project today so had some scraps of paper that really needed using up. This tag is what happened.

Distress inks : Peeled Paint and Hickory Smoke (love that new Hickory Smoke)
Paper scraps : Tim Holtz Wildflower Paper pad
Ribbon coloured with the same inks used for the background
Dylusions Spray : Linen White - when it reacted with the distress is went a light grey colour, nice.
Elephant Stamp : Any Skinner Circus set, a bit of water colouring with the hickory smoke ink
Random stamping around the edge : A TH swirly floral thing 
Sentiment : Tim Holtz

I am having a great Sunday doing nothing but crafting, hope you are enjoying your Sunday too.
Thank you for visiting.

  2. Cool tag! Love the elephant and the quote is perfect! xxx

  3. Love how you've used the paper scraps to create structure and the elephant is wonderful. Sorry I've missed so much, but I'm aiming to get back in the swing of things a bit this month.
