Elephants on Parade…

I spent just about every free second I had this week in my studio!  I sorted scraps and found some half finished elephants from a CTMH set called Wild Thing.  Now I started these elephants with my first few Copic markers and it didn’t occur to me (duh!) at the time to write down what colors I used.  So I was flying blind on finishing these guys.
I used CPS sketch #241 for the layout. I had already cut all three elephants out in circles and made the dark blue scallop to layer.
This one is a sketch from Doodle Bug designs, I loved this and it fit with my circles even if it didn’t go with their theme!

Lastly and surprisingly this one went perfect with the CPS Sketch 252 and I think it’s my favorite.  All the pattern papers were from TAC’s Just Like Dad paper, the cardstocks were old DCWV. 
All three of them I used C-2, C-5 and C-7 to darken or attempt to add shading too.  If they ever have a Copic certification class local to me I’m so there.  I love using them, I just have SO much to learn.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have time to do something creative this weekend!
