Circus elephant ;o)

Hello there, well it's been a very grey and drizzly day here.  I went out this morning to get my hair trimmed and then went to get some fabric for some orders I have to make and typically the fabric shop was closed!  Such a nuisance when it is such an effort for me to get into town.  I now have to make another trip to get what I need.  Anyway, I thought I wuld share a little card with you made using a stamp from the Humphrey's Corner range of stamps.  This one is Humphrey dressed as a circus character ;o)

I used papers from Dovecraft and took the colours from there to colour the image.  I made a turquoise card base and then matted and layered using the papers (which I distressed with walnut stain ink) and some Kraft card.  I coloured Humphrey with Copics.  I made a little rosette and then heat embossed a sentiment with some red twinkle powder to pop on top of the rosette.  I added some bright buttons with some twine tied through them.  I did the inside of the card to match.  Quite a simple card but I love the bright colours and think it would make a great birthday card for a little boy or girl!  I hope you like him too ;o)
