Fun Critters ...

I coloured this little elephant with pink toenails using  Spectrum Noir  pens ...  just for fun.

I have matted and layered her onto two shade of pink card.

The Diamante around the edge is some that a friend brought me back from Shanghai and it is in  self adhesive strips.

The background has been Faux Letter pressed with an M-Bossabilities folder  and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.

The flower is a paper one and the swirl behind it is from the Venetian  Motifs  from Spellbinders... and I have used a thin Organza ribbon around the spine.
This  King of the Jungle  is from the CD 
The Next Big Thing  from
Just Inklined   and there are lots of different animals  for you to choose from.

This has been coloured with pens from Spectrum Noir six pen set.

Notice the textured effect on the hair ... it is very easy to achieve and will be covered in the next  video tutorial
                 Colour Class - Browns.

  5. Hi Christina! I'm just popping by to thank you for your wonderful videos. I'm at home with tonsillitis (which apparently a middle-aged lady is not supposed to get!) and your tutorials have been such an inspiration! I've been watching them all day!

    Your cards are lovely, too, you have such a great eye for colour!

    love Mags B x

  6. Hi Christina your cards are so lovely I love the painted toe nails it really made me smile and reminded me of a joke my grandson told me 'why did the elephant paint it's toe nails green'?
    answer 'so it could hide in the apple tree' I know it's an oldie but my grandson thought it was hilarious.

  7. Wow, such fun cards Christina! Great designs as always a treat to visit you! Beautiful cards!
    Happy Thanksgiving!
