AI Elephant

I have been looking at this Zany Zoo set from Artful Inkables for quite a while I just didn't have the time, energy, mojo, or what-have-you to use it. So today I grabbed this elephant and used the SCS CC221 for this week and came up with this.

The scanner misses some of the soft sponging along the edge of the base layer of Sahara Sand, (I rarely use this color but it just fit so well with the elephant's coloring.) It also misses some of the sponging on the whisper white scallop edges. This looks better IRL, not as stark as the scanned picture looks.

I love Kristin's artwork, it is so easy to color! I used my ever growing Copic markers. *sigh* I just can't get enough of them!

I actually did some more coloring today, but I will post it tomorrow. I'm not sure I'll even make a card out of it, but I'm so excited about it I have to share, it's just bedtime and I'm beat!
