Susan's latest One Layer Wednesday Challenge #9 was to use Flourishes on your card.
I have a few sets of flourishes ... and look, this is all I could create! I think my creative mojo has gone on vacation!!
I don't own this little elephant punch that is so cute but I love it so much I hand drew one onto light cardboard and cut it out. Now I just use him as a template to create my own by tracing and cutting out. This time, I cut a mask and sponged on some Bordering Blue (Stampin' Up!). I then added the flourish (Finest Flourishes - Papertrey Ink) in Aqua Mist (Papertrey Ink) which I thought totally looked like water! Finally, I added the little sentiment (Mixed Messages - Papertrey Ink) and a few small black accents and an eye. I ended the card by using my grey and a very light blue Copic marker to create a shadow which anchors this little guy!
Well, if I get my mojo back and think of a better idea I'll post!
