The stamp is from a really nice Clear Magic Stamp Set called 'Indian Dreams' available from Handy Hippo. I coloured the little fella with Promarkers and tried to make him nice and bright so he stands out. I hope that he isn't too overshadowed by the Taj Mahal!!!
This is the Taj Mahal Free Clip Art image that I used from Microsoft Office page. I changed the colour to white in iPhoto Software so that I could colour it. I have used artistic licence here and coloured it Pink!! No offence to the Taj Mahal as I LOVE the building, but I coloured it Ivory and it didn't look as good on this card. If I could travel to India, the Taj Mahal is one of the places that I would love to see.
The cloud background was done with a little cloud template that I made for Easter Card a couple of months back. I used Bahama Blue Memento Ink and my new Ink Duster Brushes. I am SO happy with these brushes. A big Thank You! to Bev Rochester for sharing this method on her Tutorial!!! I have wanted to use Distress Inks for so long and I am just no good with sponge!!! I also then bought the proper Ink Blending Tool and I still couldn't get it right. I am really happy with these brushes!!
Elephant: Cool Greys 2, 3 & 4

I made the sentiment on computer. And that's it really. I think that it's quite a Clean and Simple design. I know there is no white background but I think there is a feeling of space about it, especially in the clouds.

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post! I think it was me who blew a fuse!! LOL The fuse didn't help on the DVD Player!!! I didn't really think it would as there was a loud bang from inside the DVD, so I think it was something major! it is completely dead! as my television picture was fed through dvd it was all fuzzy, but I have managed to pull that Scart Plug out by feel. I can't bend and stretch to do it with my spine/arthritis problems and my daughter is away at the moment. So just felt at back and yanked the thing out!!! LOL anyway, my telly works now at least!!! so big smile!! I can watch Neighbours tonight...
Take care and thanks for visiting!
Love Sue xx
