ellie...

 Hi , isn't this little elephant from WPlus 9 just soooo adorable.
I have had this stamp set for a while and have been hanging out to colour her up.
Ellie has been printed out of dictionary paper that was scanned into my computer. I then used the faded out option in word and printed the dictionary paper onto blending card.
I then stamped Ellie and the balloon and coloured with my  Copics.
