Mardi Gras

I'm a little slow in getting this posted, however the theme for 
is "Mardi Gras" using green, purple & gold colours.

I had the tag sitting on the table from last week when I was having a play with Ken Oliver "Colour Burst" paints.  I realised that this was a perfect background to go with the theme and since "Ellie" is a bit of a party elephant, she would be just right!

I coloured her hat and trunk with a gold gel pen, with the pompom and trim in green.  She is shaded with a pale grey pencil as I wanted her to stand out from the background.  The bunting is from a stamp in my stash.  A little piece of music washi tape adds to the festive feeling of Mardi Gras, and a length of purple ribbon finishes off the tag.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Crafting!
