Water Color Wednesday - Sketched Elephant

Hi Everybody,

This delightful stamp is called Sketched Elephants and it is from Whimsy Stamps  It is a matching die and stamp set and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it.  Here I have just stamped the image and water colored it for a soft and pastel look to my card.
I have added in lace and  flowers ...  kindly donated to me  from  Wild Orchid Crafts  ... The flowers are pale pink, yellow and lilac and I have made them even paler with the Gesso that has been brushed onto the petals. Then they have been glittered up with Glitter Magic

I distressed the edges of the card with my scissors and I love the look. Adding in the pearl spray and the Pink  twine was the finishing touch. I dotted in small pearls in the same colors to blend with the card and they are from Want2Scrap

I partially cut the around the balloon with  Pierced Hearts  from Spellbinders and then raised the balloon with foam tape underneath it.  I added some Wink Of Stella clear glitter pen to make the balloon  glisten

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
