The Pink Elephant Challenge

Well I certainly haven't done very well with challenges over the last few weeks... but hey ho... that's the way life goes at times.
However, here is one I have made for the Pink Elephant Challenge this week where you are given a sketch to follow. Perfect actually for some of the products I had to use.
I have used a black base card, upon which I have mounted a white layer of card. Next up are some black squares upon which I have mounted white handmade paper... the paper was stamped on using Color Box inks & detail was coloured using the same inks.
A circle was cut from black card & then the edge highlighted using a gold calligraphy pen & mounted using silicone.
In centre of the black circle is a chipboard flower which I decorated. Stamped onto chipboard using staz on & then water coloured using Sakura Stardust.
A few clear gems to finish off.
Well time to get back to the old work load again & hopefully I'll get more posted later.
Happy crafting
