E is for Elephant

Hello.  Welcome.  The Craft Barn's Alpha Dictionary challenge has E as this fortnights letter.  I really didn't want to go with elephant.  I looked at many other alternatives.  But then I realised it is.  E is for elephant.  Everyone knows that.  Ask a child.  A is for apple, B is for bear, bee, banana, box, well, OK let's move on......  C is for cat, D is for dog, E is for elephant..................  And I had this lovely stamp from Rubber Dance Stamps that fitted perfectly on my giant playing card so......

I kept this very simple.  I covered my card with white paper, stamped Rubber Dance's Elephant and masked him.  Then I took a piece of ripped paper and used the corner of my black archival ink pad to add a line of ink.  Then I moved the ripped paper up the card and repeated.  Might have to use that technique again.  Definition from the OED.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  2. E is for Excellent! Such a cool card, Gail! Love the hills you made behind the Elephant, and of course I love the Elephant since it's by my stamp company ;-) Thank you for showing him off! ♥

  3. Well can't go wrong with Elephant... good choice! I love this stamp and your monochrome CAS card shows him (it's a him) off splendidly!

  4. Lovely card. Thank you for entering the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge xx

  5. Love it! Thanks for playing with us at scrappegarasjen.

  6. I love the clean and simple look you have chosen for this letter and it shows the elephant off beautifully.

  7. If I had such a beautiful elephant stamp I would have usd it as well. The monochrome colour scheme really shows the image off.
