Sheena A Taste of India Blog Hop


It's release day for the Sheena A Taste of India! Here's a colorful card I made to send anyone just to say hello! I love the way this turned out.

I took the elephant from the Sheena A Taste of India Marching Elephants and stamped that onto the Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock. My go-to paper. It's a must have! I then took my Spectrum Noir markers ( IG2, IG4, IG5, IG6, TN7, GB1, EB2) and I added shadows and colored in the floral blanket and head piece of the elephant with the Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencil (038, 039, 119, 046, 021, 113, 028, 033, 036, 066, 071, 065, 112, 003). 

I then fussy cut around the elephant and used foam adhesive squares to pop her up off the background. I chose a golden yellow patterned paper that I thought went well with the Indian theme. I snuck in the wooden hello bubble behind the elephant and there you go!
