Back to stamping with Elusive Images elephant stamps. This was part of a challenge from last year with the theme of "Exotic Colours". The background was achieved with a small elephant stamp which was stamped and embossed in a random nature using bright coloured embossing powders. The ornamentation on the elephant's cover were achieved using Viva Pearl Pens. The background mat for the larger elephant was made by painting various colours of Viva Precious Metal paint onto black card and cutting to the correct size when dry. The large elephant was stamped and embossed in gold on black card and cut out. The precious metal paints were used again to colour in the elephant's cover. A matting layer of gold mirror card was used between the background and the metallic painted sheet to help give dimension to the card and the elephant was mounted to the card with foam pads to give more depth.
