Elephant Love from Bugaboo Stamps for the Colour Crazy Challenge for the 14th of February, 2020

At Colour Crazy Challenge for the 14th of February, we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and I chose Elephant Love.

Here is my card:

As I mentioned, the sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps.

Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps - a short essay!

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of paper-crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was seven years ago.  

Today, Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful, all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more, to create your paper projects.

Jodie works hard to provide new releases and freebies every week!

I have digitally printed Elephant Love on to X-Press It Blending card and then cut using my paper cutter.
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • boy elephant - R30, C00, C0, C1, C3, C5
  • girl elephant - R30, C00, C0, C1, C3, C5, RV63, RV66, BV11, BV13, BV17, R37, Wink of Stella
  • heart - R35, R37, R39, Wink of Stella
  • flowers - YR12, YR14, YR16, YR24, E35, Wink of Stella
  • leaves - YG00, YG63, YG67, Wink of Stella
  • grass - YG93, YG95, YG97
  • sky - BG000, B000, B00
  • outline - R39
I am pretty sure I have drawn some inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

I have adhered the coloured image to a white card from Envelope Solutions and stamped a heart and two of the sentiments from Good Thinking: Love Notes from the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy in Love Letter Memento ink. Finally I added a wooden butterfly from my stash in the bottom corner with some clear sparkling Stickles.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

And here is a photo of William - one of our two cats that seems to always be around when I am taking photos of cards. Although that being said Sox, our other cat came up for a smudge as I was taking these photos tonight, but I was not fast enough to take a photo!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenges #406 - February Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge #298 - Anything Goes in February
2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #35 - February Anything Goes as long as there is a critter or two!

  3. Did you realize there is a 12 word sentence you can say to your partner... that will trigger deep emotions of love and impulsive attractiveness to you deep within his chest?

    That's because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's instinct to love, cherish and guard you with his entire heart...

    12 Words That Trigger A Man's Love Instinct

    This instinct is so built-in to a man's genetics that it will drive him to work harder than ever before to to be the best lover he can be.

    As a matter of fact, triggering this influential instinct is absolutely important to having the best possible relationship with your man that the moment you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

    ...You'll immediately find him open his heart and mind to you in such a way he's never expressed before and he'll see you as the only woman in the galaxy who has ever truly fascinated him.
