Don't Forget!

One of the things I don't want to forget is that today we get another featured stamper challenge on SCS! So who is todays featured stamper? It is Carole Burrage aka TruCarMa, congratulations Carole!

After spending a little time checking out Carole's gallery I finally decided to CASE this card. Of course I had to make at least two changes to Carole's card for this challenge. Here is what I changed:
  • Used a different image
  • Used a different verse
  • Used a different background stamp
  • Used a different ribbon
  • Changed the colors
  • Added my verse to the right corner of the olive card
  • Added brads to the bottom corners of the card
  • Added an additional layer to my base card
For this card I stamped the elephant twice once on the scallop circle and once on scrap white card. After coloring both images in I cut out the head only of the scrap piece and layered it to the elephants head using foam tape.

Recipe:
Stamps: It's a Jungle out there - My Favorite Stamps; Weave B/G - Cornish Heritage Farms
Paper: Old Olive - SU; White; Dark Grey
Other: Black Ink; Olive Pastel & Dark Moss Fluid Chalks; Circle Nestibilities; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Grosgrain Ribbon; Olive Brads; Foam Tape
