I trust you are well and in the mood for crafting. We have a new challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges; Inspired by a Song Title.
I am so excited by this challenge, as soon as I found out what our next challenge was I could not help thinking about all of those songs my mother taught me when I was a child. But which to choose, there were so many, Old MacDonald had a Farm, Ten Green Bottles, How Much is that Doggie in the Window, the list is endless. My problem was picking one ......... I eventually decided on Nellie the Elephant.
I wanted a circus elephant for my design and found the perfect image at Mels Brushes, after colouring her with my Promarkers, I added a little bling form my stash. I also found a circus tent on the internet, which I coloured with my trusty Promarkers and made a flag and attached it with a whittled down cocktail stick. I placed the big top in the background as Nellie made her dash for freedom and headed for the heard, which were calling her from far, far away!
I made the luggage labels by colouring some plain white card with my Promarkers. The backing paper is from Dovecraft and I printed my images on Crafty Boots fabulous Deluxe Crafters Card.
But there was no me stopping now, I was inspired to make a second card, The Animals Went in Two by Two:
I have had this Noah's Ark stamp in my stash for about fifteen, or maybe even twenty years, and I had great fun colouring it again after all this time. I made the blue background by colouring some white Deluxe Crafters Card with my Powder Blue Promarker. The other background paper is by Dovecraft.
And finally, I have a third offering to hopefully inspire you. Puff the Magic Dragon, a particular favourite from my childhood.
