Ha! I love this elephant! Too bad she is retiring.
My first card had her colored with Basic Gray ink and an aqua painter. I'm just not a good colorer- er-er:
I decided to redo the card by stamping the elephant on Designer Paper (rainbow sherbet), cutting out the image, and pasting it over the badly colored gray one. Much better.
I re-organized my stamping area and switched tables. Now I have about 6 feet of work space while before, I only had about 2 feet. I've also pledged to clean as I go when I'm working. If I can, I think I'll get down to business better. I tend to see my mess from my last project and spend too much time clearing a space.
I'm working this week on Monday's class--it is Man Month. We are making all masculine cards. Not a piece of cake, that is for sure. It'll be fun though.
