Happy Birthday Ellie

Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft - Vol. 14 No. 06 on sale 26 December 2008.

One of the great things about High Hopes Rubber Stamps is they are so GENEROUS! They always throw in a couple extra stamps attached to your other ones so its a great little surprise to pick up a stamp and find a freebie attached to it on the corner! Attached to my jungle animals was a little grass stamp which is just adorable when it is repeated and this balloon stamp! I spent an hour watercoloring the grass and then cutting it out then when I went to stick down the elephant, I realised that I only had to watercolour and cut the little bits on the side!! Well I know that for next time! I really need a gray ink pad now but I don't want to put in a whole SU order to get one... that's why he is a Cameo Coral elephant!

Your watercolouring is fantastic, I can't seem to get the shades of colour like you do, but I am sure its practice practice practice. Thanks also for letting me know about the blog candy, I will be watching for the postman.
