"Once Upon a Time" while demoing at a scrapbooking event. I took it home and then paired it up with some patterned papers. Usually I do this process the other way around. I pick my patterned paper first then color. Thankfully the bulk of the image is a neutral (gray) so finding papers wasn't too hard.
I didn't have to look to far on my desk as my Lily Bee picket fence papers were still laying on top!
The sentiment came from this month's triple scoop set called Clearly Sentimental about Friendship.
I like how the elephant is extending his trunk so I thought he could hold a rose to tie in the sentiment. I cut a rolled rose out of felt with my MFT die and then placed a stick pin through the center. I colored the metal green with my copic marker to mimic a stem.
copic markers. After coloring the elephant with a series of cool gray markers I went in after and added some age spots.
Finally enjoying some sunshine here today!
