An Elephant Card

It's time for a card made with one of Dora's beautiful digis. This month her theme is elephants and she drew this gorgeous lifelike elephant! I coloured it with Be Creative Alcohol markers and created the background in the oval with ink dusters. I stamped the base card with a very old stamp by Katy Widger from Rubber  Poet(I don't think you can get them any more). I used Kaleidacolor creole spice ink. This reminds me so much of the colourful fabrics I saw in Rwanda, so is an ideal backdrop for an African Elephant. You can find Dora's Digis here on her blog.
Thanks for looking!

Wow Your elephant is so realistic looking. Fab colouring. I was looking for an elephant image but the only one I found had a lot of jungle background to colour in so I didn't do it and coloured a couple of toucans instead as one does! hugs Mrs A.

A very cool card, Sally. It looks gorgeous - I immediately thought that my daughter would like it because she loves elephants.
