I love this sketch. It has been a long time since I did a card with color blocking. I wouldn't make duplicates because it is time consuming but I certainly enjoyed spending several hours on just one card. Here is what I came up with.
I used papers from a 6" pad of Authentique "Remembrance". The elephant is just a little $1 stamp. I stamped it twice and cut the gray image out and placed on top of the image with the tail. I added a little pink chalk to the ears. The flower was colored with a Glaze pen. I stamped the heart separate. Actually, the heart was part of the elephant stamp but I cut it off and stamped with colored ink. I am not adverse to whacking on my stamps especially when it is a cheap stamp. It is the first card I have made with this image. The size was perfect for this square. I have a snowman stamp also that is the perfect size so I may make a card with it.
