Paper Elephants ...

It has been so long since a posted to my blog that I've almost forgotten where to begin!!  I've been away this past week visiting family in Lincolnshire, there has not been much time for crafting although I did teach my mum a couple of new techniques.

Since my return I've managed to create two cards - one which I am sharing today and the other you will have to wait to see for a couple of weeks.

I've returned to paper piecing for this card - it is ages since I've used this technique and I had forgotten how much I enjoy doing it, so you may see more!  This week's challenge at "Less is More" is ANIMAL - I was excited as I have just got a new stamp set that I wanted to try out.  So here's the card:

The elephant on the right is pale pink

I used:
Altenew stamp set - Ori Kami
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Designer Papers
Grey Embroidery Silk

I will also enter the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More where the theme is Clean and Simple.
