For my card, I used the FireCracker Designs. Elephants on Parade set. I used a reverse mask and the gold ink to create the sinking sun. The elephants were stamped first w/ pearlescent ivy ink then overstamped w/ the lightning black. I added a little shading on the elephants using a q-tip and some of the gold ink. After masking the elephants, the ground was sponged in and the fronds were stamped.
The background panels were done w/ the Painted Grid Tech from the TLC challenge, by placing drywall tape (it's sticky and looks like Magic Mesh) around my brayer and rolling gold, dk green and lt ivory acrylic paint onto hunter green, mossy green and ivory card stocks. All panels were edged w/ a Krylon gold leafing pen an some gold mini brads were added.
The sentiment was cut w/ a Spellbinders circle and labels dies.
Thanks so much for looking! Please visit my blog: The Write Stuff for more info and a special from FCD.
