Lest We Forget

Hello Nomad friends.  Today it was too sunny to be indoors so I grabbed some stamps, card and ink and set myself in a shaded corner and made this

I selected some of my brightest distress inks and various Rubber Dance stamp sets.  I used Mixed Media Marks and the rainbow from Pencil Marks 3 for the background, just randomly stamping with various colours until I thought it looked pretty.  The border is from the Mixed Media Borders set.  I knew I wanted to use the elephant from African Animals, but added a little extra texture to him with one of the Mixed Media Marks set.  Elephants are so majestic and I always think they look like they are doing some serious thinking.  Except baby elephants!   They seem to enjoy being mischievous.  The sentiment is also a Rubber Dance stamp from the Just a Note set.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

As You Like It Challenge - Favourite African or Australian Wild Animal I like a lot of the big african animals but the elephant is just so majestic.  Gotta love that they take such great care of each other.  We could learn something there.....
