My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 258 – Adorable Elephants

Okay, I told you I colored up a whole page of these darling pachyderms, so you are going to be seeing a few cards with them.

Plus, today is the last day to participate in the MFT Card Challenge this week, so I did this card last night for that. Lookie:


STINKIN' CUTE! I thought of the elephant from the Island of Misfit Toys, so I did one of them with polka dots. And then I thought how cute it would be to have the plain elephants in the background, and Ms. Polka Dot front and center. Certainly, an unforgettable elephant!


Behind the elephants, I used the MFT Sun Ray stencil to subtly emboss the white circle using my Empressor tool that I've had for a long time. Ideally, I would do this with a light box, but since I gave it to my daughters to use in art school, I am without one. I was able to do this fairly easily though on my desk since the lines were mostly straight.


I just got a whole slew of these self-adhesive sequins from Jillibean Soup. I wanted a unique embellishment for this card, and the little banner punch from SU! was just what I was looking for.


A nice knot of American Crafts baker's twine completes the embellishment.

Below is my list of products that I used (that are still available), and I have used affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC,, and Blick Art Supplies. Buying through these links helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you. Stampin' Up! product links lead to their webstore, so please be sure to indicate your preference in demonstrator if it doesn't come up automatically!


Enjoy! Ta!
