I am playing along with the Global Design Project challenge again ,GDP123, and this time I will submit it within the time period.  This challenge is New Beginnings.  The set I immediately thought of is one that I have not used but a few times.  It is the super cute “A Little Wild” set.  The adorable animals make tags or can be used as front/back on a card.  I just used the front of the precious elephant for my card.

I used the blends to color again.  I told you I am hooked on those pens.  That aside, I love the elephant holding the balloon.  I think it is a cute Welcome Baby type card.  The other animals in the set would be just as adorable.

To get just the front of the elephant, I used my Momento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and just tapped it on the one side of the stamp.  I have found that from using the Absorber cloth to clean my stamps that I do not have the light color left.  Before I would have a pale pinkish residue that would stamp when I didn’t want it to!

The balloon is from the Balloon Bouquet Punch and is the larger of the two.  I then took the Sweet Sugarplum marker and went around the edge of the white balloon to give it some depth.  This is a great trick to use when you do not have the layering of card stock.
