Fun Autumn Day with Ellie - Whimsy Stamps August Release Inspiration

Hello Crafty Friends! Here is another card I made with a new August release image from Whimsy Stamps. This time it's an image from Crissy. It's one of her super cute elephants, called Ellies Autumn Day.

I stamped the image with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto Canson watercolor paper. I always stamp on the smooth side of a cold press watercolor paper. Then I used my Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils to color the sweet elephant image.

I stamped the image again onto masking paper, cut it out, adhered it over the image and stamped the Scratchy Plaid Background using a matching ink (milled lavender distress ink). After removing the masking paper I added the blue outline/shine around the image, again with watercolor pencils.
The sentiment is from the You're Birthday clear set.

Here's a closer look at the image:

I created a frame using the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles die set. I love this die set. Unfortunately they will be retiring so if you were always thinking of buying this fab set this is now your last chance! Once they are gone they wont be restocked!
