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!
