You Can Do It! ~ CYP Challenge 211

Hello there! It's time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges. The theme for Challenge 211 is Up in the Air. We want to see anything that can fly. Easy peasy! Our fabulous sponsor this week is The Doodle Garden and I chose to work with this sweet image called Eloise the Tightrope Elephant. I coloured Eloise with Prismacolor pencils and cut her and her tightrope out with a Spellbinder's Wonky Squares die. The edges of the square were inked with broken China Distress ink and the image was matted in black cardstock. Eloise was given black half pearl eyes and black cord was glued over the tightrope in the image with Glossy Accents.

The background papers are a mixture from my scrap box. I chose the harlequin pattern because it reminds me of the pattern on those animal stands in the circus. Both of the main papers were matted in black. The flowers were fussy cut from Amy Tangerine paper with extra centers cut and popped up on foam for dimension.

The sentiment was computer generated, cut into a banner, and matted in black. Black enamel card candy was added to either end as well as the corner element. Dots and faux stitching were doodled to add to the whimsy of the card.

Thanks for stopping by to visit with Eloise and me. We both love an audience and certainly appreciate the time you spend here. If you get a chance, pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the delightful projects created by my teamies. These images from The Doodle Garden are so fun...they are sure to bring you a smile. I hope you will play along with our Up in the Air challenge this week.
