Hello folks, I have a couple of little elephant cards to share with you today - no challenges to enter, both are just because.

You will no doubt have seen lots of the new Wild Rose Studio summer collection being showcased by the very talented Kate over at Downrightcrafty and showcased in such an amazing way that I am adding Kate to my "bad influence" list!

This one is Bella with Dahlia
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment is Personal Impressions
Matting layers from leftovers box

And this is Bella with Teddy
Again, painted with Distress Inks
That fabulous large sentiment is Hero Arts
Papers are an old Craftwork Cards pack Tutti Frutti
Martha Stewart border punch to finish

I am never really sure what colour an elephant should be - when you watch wildlife films they can be anything from red to almost black, but for the purposes of painting I have used the Weathered Wood Distress Ink, which is a lovely soft blue-grey.

Well, it is back to work for me tomorrow (sigh) so I hope those of you on holiday for this half term week have a super time.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

I can confirm that Miss Kate is an absolutely shocking influence! I have so much Wild Rose Studio paper and I swear it's all down to Kate!!! These images are just super cute and you've coloured them to perfection :D Just gorgeous Mrs! I had to eat a v large amount of crumble to be extra sure it was edible. Can't imagine why I'm putting on weight!!!! Hugs, super chubby Fairy xxx
