I am sticking with the elephant theme this week... you know what it is like when you get a new set of stamps.. you just want to play!
Chocolate Baroque Indian Elephant stamps for this page. The paisley flower stamp was stamped at the top using Versafine Olympia Green. I then stamped the elephant and the flourish design underneath him in the same ink. I stamped the wording from Chocolate Baroque Artistic Affirmations set.
I then started to paint in details on the elephant using Eco-green paint Aged Gold. I then added highlights through all the stamped designs using White gel and Gold gel pens. I just loved the detail in the paisley pattern stamp - particularly once it had the white highlights. As a final touch I drew in a few white gel pen stars in the background and added a few stick on gems here and there to add some sparkle.
This was a really chilled out piece to create .. it was lovely to sit and just pick out the detail with the white pen.
