Hi! I made this card for this weeks inspiration challenge. I really like this sight and could have made a lot of cards based on the inspiration I got here, but I chose this statuette of an elephant for the inspiration of this card. http://www.novica.com/itemdetail/index.cfm?pid=135631
I kept my card somewhat simple since the inspiration piece is relatively simple, with lots of white space. The color in the inspiration piece is concentrated on the elephant's saddle, so I concentrated on the middle of the card. I used my aquapainter and reinkers to color the flowers. I used several shades of blue to get the lapis lazuli color and mixed 2 greens to get the gradations of green. I used a MS punch to imitate Indian architecture and the new SU! dsp to reiterate the dots on the elephant's trunk.
This was a fun and relatively simple card to make! TFL, and have a great day!!
