Punch Elephants




Hello Everyone
...
Today's project was a special request from Elaine, who comes to my second Tuesday class. (Hi Elaine *waves*)
...
At her sister's workshop she set me a challenge. She wanted to know how to make a punch art elephant.
...
So home to my punch rack and I started to experiment. The butterfly punch and heart to heart punch works perfectly for the ears.

The trunks are made from the large heart, (mummy elephant) and the largest of the heart to heart hearts, (baby elephant).

...

My best success was the tail, which is the leaf from the 2 step bird punch, snipped above the first leaf and the leaf feathered to create the tail.

...

I finished the card with the tree stamp from Forest Friends, the leaf from Lovely as a Tree and more leaf punchies.

...

I love them - and my lovely upline Amanda thought they were so cute she asked me to teach them at her quarterly team training day. :)

...

Hope you like!

  5. Ack! I'm seeing pink elephants! When I was a kid that was the universal indicator (on TV) that an adult had been drinking too much! LOL *looks at diet coke* hmmmm... maybe I'll switch to water. *smirk*

    I'm betting yours are much cuter than the ones they saw! Adorable.
