Elephant emboss paste

Hi Everyone my DT card today is for
I hope you'll join us, there's great inspiration throughout the blog for
 that masculine card so many find difficult.

Don't forget to add the challenge badge to your post.

My take on the embossing, is to use "paste" which I made myself, by using talcum powder and watered down PVA glue, I also added fine silver glitter into it, I didn't measure! just got it to look like the right consistency to spread! 

Then I spread onto patterned paper through a stencil I cut out with my Cameo. I mounted it onto black paper and added it to the card. I printed out the Elephant with the added sentiment, (cased from the web). I coloured the Elephant with marker pens, and mounted that onto black paper. Ribbon added voila! I have to admit I'm loving this card. It's off to my Niece's husband.
coloured with Spectrum Noir Marker pens
stencil pattern - Silhouette Design Store
paper - Craft Sensations
black paper - stash

I was hoping this photo would show more of the glitter, 
oh! well at least you can see the patterned paper - a little LOL.

I followed this sketch, but was too late for the challenge :(

Oh Faith, this card is fabulous!I love your stencil you made and I am loving that you made your own embossing paste. It looks amazing and I can see the glitter well! Then there is the elephant, oh goodness, I love him so much! You have colored him perfectly too. I would have made a mess of him. lol Your take on the sketch is perfect as is the sentiment on this card. I will have to remember this one for some elephant stamps I have. Mine are cutesy though, not realistic like your beautiful elephant. Hugs, Brenda
