WWC201 - Marsha's Special Two-Week Year-End "Anything Goes" Challenge

Wow!  The year is almost over.  Did anyone else think  it went super-fast?  It's already time for our special year-end challenge, which is always two weeks long to allow everyone time to enjoy those wonderful holidays.  I love that it's an "Anything Goes" challenge.  I have just the right stamp which is perfect to end one year and begin the next.

This stamp set by Gina Marie is s triple stamp set.  So you stamp the first image which is really just the light greys of the elephant and then, with the second and third image, you stamp in the details.  I love how realistic the finished image is, don't you?  Since I don't like my images to just "hang" in mid-air, I used my AquaPainter and Smoky Slate ink to create a shadow-shape .

I kept all my colour to greys and black.  I like the way it looks against the white.  The sentiment is, I think, perfect for many things, including looking forward to the New Year.  After all, isn't that what we're doing when we approach the new year?  We set new goals and dream ourselves more dreams.  It's a new beginning.  To finish off, I added three black rhinestones to the top right and three to the bottom left.  It's a CAS design and I love it.

I hope you'll check out the awesome creations by the other Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge blog.
