Pink Elephant Challenge

Well it's yet another lovely bright & warm day where I am, although there are a few clouds in the sky but hopefully these will burn off as the sun pushes it's way through.
A lovely night was had by all yesterday, all be it I was exhausted by about 9pm so lazed back on the sofa with my feet up letting the tv entertain us all. Rob was quite happy too... he received some lovely gifts & a surprise card from my buddy Gayle.
So now that a new day has dawned, here is my morning challenge card... yes I'm going to attempt an afternoon one too, if I can stay out of the garden long enough.. this time it's for the Pink Elephant challenge where we have to use the colours blue, green & white.
Must be something to do with all the sunshine of late, but I knew right away what I wanted to do... all be it simple.
Using cotton wool I blended 3 different colours of blue ink to create the sky... cut a border on 3 strips of green card to create the grass, then inked and attached to the card. Finally I used a Sakura stardust pen for the stems & leaves & stuck on some white wooden flowers.

For some reason I seem to be going through a phase of creating some really plain simple cards... not sure if it's that the mojo has taken a journey or if I'm just enjoying using items in their own right which means using less.

Well I'm off again to get on with the day... see you all soon and hope you're enjoying the sunshine too no matter where you are.

Happy crafting

Wow that is just so effective. Love your sky effect - I have some ready done card like that, but must remember how you created your sky for when I run out.
