Sir Stampalot challenge

Good Morning! It's the first of February and time for another Sir Stampalot Challenge. This month our theme is All Creatures Great and Small, and here is my offering.
The background was created with distress inks on watercolour paper and then spayed with glimmer mist. When it was dry I stamped Clarity Stamp's elephant in two shades of Memento ink. The base card was stamped with a leaf stamp by Rubber poet in Kaleidacolor creole spice. 
Pop over to the Sir Stampalot Challenge blog to see my lovely teamies inspirational creations and I do hope you will join in with us this month. As February is a shorter month the closing date for entries will be the 25th February. Now I can hear you saying what about the prize? Well, as soon as Andy and Janice get back from the States we will tempt you a little more with pictures of the fabulous prize! Happy Crafting!

This is great Sally. The background is perfect in design and colour for your main image. Love the shimmer on the main image too. The colours are just right as well.
