SHOPPING OUR STASH WEEKLY CHALLENGE

The theme this week is "CRITTERS" click the link to join

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge  "Fathers Day"  elephant is entered in this also  as he is a manly animal for sure.

Its very easy for me to shop my stash and ferret all that stuff in intended to use out as I am still on a no purchase drive
Though I did have to purchase some more white card as I had ran out making all these cards I never normally make....

Anyway for the theme critters I have used this little elephant from a stamp pack bought some time ago that has only just come out the packet...
It is an 8x8 card so perhaps not that tiny
The card I used was stamps away stamping 200gsm it is quite shiny and the ink spread a little to well to what I am used to, did not dry instantly either so it gave a watercolour stamping effect, not what I expected but looks ok.  not sure I would use it again for ink blending techniques though, perhaps brayering??
Also I found that the clear elephant stamp using archival black stuck to the paper and was tricky to remove without ripping it?
