The whimsical silhouetted images included in this new stamp set, "Under the Big Top" said to me "fun and colourful" so I set out to make a super simple yet almost child-like type card!
Classic White Cardstock to stamp all of my cute images on. For my little banner, I used the "Hello" stamp sentiment from the "Bee My Honey" collection. I used some "Peach Glow" cardstock form the Terra Cotta Color Made Easy Paper Collection for my card base.
For my elephant, I stamped my image 3 times using 3 different colours of ink: first in grey, then orange and red where I fussy cut the hat and saddle elements out and adhered them over top of the grey image.
I kept my colour bold and bright and my design pretty simple. I actually used this week's card sketch for Splitcoaststampers for my design this week!
