The Pink Elephant - Recipe - 3 Brads 1 Flower Designer Paper


Another of my recent downloads from the Sketching Stamper, Chris Dark!
My daughter had some of these flowers in the table decorations at her wedding, and as they were pink, I decided to make this one pink too.
I coloured the image with a variety of media... Inktense pencils, pearly paints and maybe a little water colour, all blended with a water brush. The paper is also a download, this time I think it's from Canon but I can't be sure as it has sat in the drawer for quite some time, waiting for an occasion such as this.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up. I wished I'd nipped off the 'legs' on the brads and attached them with sticky dots, as I can position them more accurately that way. As it is, in pushing them through the holes I'd made in the card, they seem to have gone a little wonky! Still as my old mum used to say...'A blind would man would have liked to see them.' (wonky or otherwise).
