Smitten Valentine Elephant


                                                         Smitten with you

Hi there stampers!

Today I'd like to share an early Valentine.  I made this little creation (well, 15 of them, actually) for our Crazy Card Club.  Our theme for the month was vintage/romantic Valentine!  Well, try as I might, my brain kept returning to this cute elephant by Our Craft Lounge.  His name is Dr. Peanut and, with the exception of the little hearts, he is intended to be on a get well card.  Point is, I missed the vintage/romantic mark by a mile but I sure had fun creating this card and coloring the elephant with my Copics.

I stamped him with a permanent black (Memento tuxedo black) since the Copic markers are alcohol based.and will smear with a non permanent ink.  For this card I dug out some old dsp by We R Memory Keepers called 'love struck'.  Seemed appropriate, right?  The little daisy flower is from a die cut by My Favorite Things and I cut two for each flower.  A simple white doily sets the background.  A simple card - and quite mailer friendly - hope you like him.

Thanks a lot for taking a look and I'll be back with others soon.
