Get Creative Challenge #17 with Eureka Stamps

Good morning crafty peeps!  Today is another post for the Get Creative Challenge design team.  I've been having a real fun time participating in this design team challenge.  This month's theme was Father's Day or For the Boys.  I got real excited when I saw this image that I chose:

Yup, it's an elephant, yeah me!

I printed the image a couple of time and then I started by coloring the elephant with a gray crayon.  You don't have to be precise with this method.  Then I put some baby oil on a q-tip and went over the top of the crayon.  It smooths and blends the crayon nicely.

Cool, huh?

I have had this elephant paper in my stash for a long time and finally pulled it out to use for this card.  I ran it through my polka dot cuddlebug for some nice texture.

Then I fussy cut my elephant out and pop dotted him.

I also ran my black ink pad over the raised paper before applying the elephant.

I cut some gray paper in sort of a cloud shape and stamped It's Your Big Day from my 
Getting Cricky collection when I was on her design team.  
I then attached a string to the elephant's trunk leading to the "balloon" and some rhinestones.

I loved how this turned out and created another version using the same techniques but added 3 baby elephants to the card.  Only this time I added a hand printed caption.

I hope I've inspired you to head over to Get Creative Challenge and create a fun Father's day card or something For the Boys.

As always, have a great day and God Bless!
