Elegant Elephant's Enjoy Life

Well, this one was hard to get a good photo of.

Zuzu's Petal's and Bud's has a monthly tag swap. this month the letter is E so here is my homage to the fabulous Vowel that is the "E"

The background paper was made by mixing silver pearl ex into modge podge and then painting it onto heavy weight paper in a criss cross pattern. I left the brush strokes and any excess the way it was. I wanted it to looked like brushed silver and it kinda does...

Next i black embossed the letter "E" all over.

The Elephant is stamped onto transparency and i colored the backside with a silver paint pen. I attached the transparency with brads and hung the letters to spell the word.

The edge of the tag is accented with black glitter. And I finished it off with some fabulous black shimmery fibers. I hope it is up to par. The other Tag's I have seen on members blogs are absolutely fantastic.

Enjoy
Caro
