Linked Friends

Hi there! Trying to escape the heat today. The cool change that was promised hasn't arrived so we just have to suffer at the moment :(

I was feeling in the crafty mood so I decided to have a play - just for the fun of it :)

This is a one layer card. I decided that linking up the elephants from the HLS Whimsical Friends set would be fun to do. I coloured them using Spectrum Noir markers (IG7, IG5, IG3, IG2) and then used some really inexpensive gel pens (from Aldi) to colour the blankets and toenails. They have a wonderful sparkle to them.

I was going to cover them in glossy accents but I am WAY too impatient for that!

Here is the set that I have used -

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

The ABC challenge - A is for Animals
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Spectrum Noir - Anything Goes

Starting February 1st

Edited to add to the One Layer Simplicity Challenge - thank you Ardyth!

Thanks for popping by and stay cool!
