One image equals two cards



Two cards today! Both destined for the Pink Box and made with the Jayne Netley Mayhew CD.


I really liked this image of elephants (looking back through the blog recently I seem to be doing a bit of stuff with wild animals..... no explanation - just a 'thing' I'm going through!!!)


Anyway back to the elephants...... The 'Blue Elephant' card was done by altering the original black outline to blue and printed it onto cream linen textured paper. The backing paper is by Basic Grey and is from the absolutely delicious Marrakech Paper Pad... which is full of gorgeous patterns and prints in fabulous colours! Matted and layered onto two different shades of blue DCWV card and some fibres added.
Grey Elephant was a real quick card and is matted and layered onto pearlised black card which doesn't show very well in the pic.
Think these cards although simple are quite effective and would be OK to send to men!
My friends over at Gingersnap Creations have a colour challenge running until 25th July - Shades of Blue - so Blue Elephant is my submission!
