Baby Elephant Celebrates

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

The NEW Baby Boom Release is now available!  The excitement continues here...this month, High Hopes is offering a new and another way to enter our contest using a Sketch Challenge (see below for more details).  Here is another card that I am thrilled to share with you, using a new image, new sentiment and also using this month's sketch design! I hope this helps to inspire you to join us and create a card using the sketch!
This is Baby Elephant Celebrates (SS020) and Just Arrived sentiment (HH027).  Such an adorable image for any baby card!
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents was applied on the balloon for some shine and dimension. The image was cut using a Memory Box die called Stitched Scalloped Circle.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Basic Gray cardstock and the layering pieces are white cardstock.  The designer paper is from Simple Stories-Hello Baby 6x6 Paper Pad.  The banners were die cut using SU Certainly Celery cardstock with a YNS Heart Banner die.  A strip of baby ribbon was added to follow the Sketch design.  Foam tape was applied to the main image to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension.  To complete this card, the sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder and a couple of YNS white gumdrops were added.
