The Paper Players #472

Super excited to announce that I am a Guest Designer over at The Paper Players for 2020! I have been playing in their challenges since 2012!  All products and styles are welcome, so come join us!  Our theme this week is Something New, which you can interpret however you would like.  I obviously went with the new baby theme!

My card was created with some well loved favorites, which are now mostly retired.  I just love that elephant stamp!  My elephant was colored with Prismacolor pencils and shaded with Gamsol.  I really think pencils are the most forgiving color medium. The papers are from the Zoe Collection, and there are still a few packs available in the Online Only section of my website.

I combined my theme challenge with the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch-

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Z3376 Sweet Baby Stamps/Thin Cuts-Retired
S1201 Little Reminder Stamp Set (sentiment)-Retired
CC4195 Zoe Paper Packet (Only a few available!)

Z4189 Intense Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Prismacolor Pencils, PC1063, PC1065, PC939
