Ellephantastic Has Launched

As most of my friends know...I haven't been in the crafting community for very long. In fact it was only march this year that I started in blogland and almost from the start have been a follower of a marvellous lady called Helen Laurence who has inspired me to carry on through the pain of FM more times than she knows. Well, she has taken the plunge and launched her new shop and challenge blog so hurry on down to Ellephantastic and have a browse.
The first challenge is launched today .... Challenge #01 "Its up to you". I have used one of the first digis I ever got, just happens to be one of Helen's. The cute little Roger. I have spruced him up a bit for the party though with a shiny red bow and polished his nose. (using glossy accents) I also used the decoupage technique that Helen showcased a while ago to give him a 3D look. The congrats and best wishes are for Helen in her new venture.



I have used the sketchy and colour scheme for Julys challenges over on CDAC
I'm also going to enter this into Digi Doodles challenge for their circles and dots challenge and Lexi's Creations for their Layers/ 3D challenge.
