I immediately thought of all the amazing animals you can see on safari and that led me to these sweet little elephants from My Favorite Things.
I knew I was going to color with Copics and that they tend to bleed, so I started by cutting a panel with a stitched rectangle die. I stamped my elephant using my MISTI to make sure he was centered and then stamped my sentiment below him to ground him.
I used my Copics to color him in. I used warm grays for the elephant and then used cool grays to add a slight shadow around him to help him stand out from the stark white of the panel. I added a little bit of grass below him using my yellow greens.
I adhered my panel directly onto a card base using a tape runner and I was all done!
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see how you're inspired this week!
