Elephant with Soap Bubbles Card feat. Lawn Fawn

Today I have a summer card to share, where I used Lawn Fawn stamps to make a cute elephant blowing soap bubbles. Read on to see more!

Here's a picture of the finished card:

To make the card, I started by stamping the elephant and the sentiment. When inking up the elephant, I masked off the top of his trunk, so that the curved part wouldn't show. After stamping, I drew in a line to close off his now shortened trunk. I colored in the elephant with Copic markers.
For the soap bubbles, I diecuts several small circles in different sizes from white cardstock. The circles I used were not circle dies, but rather circle elements from other dies, like the circle holes of a button die and some circles on a flower die.
After diecutting, I colored the soap bubbles along their outer edge, with pink, blue and yellow Copics. I blended the colors, along with a super light grey, onto the circle diecuts with a Copic colorless blender. To make the soap bubbles sparkly, I added a layer of a Spica glitter pen overtop of them.
To finish off the card, I adhered the soap bubbles to the card, and mounted the panel onto a blue cardbase

I made this card to enter into the current Lawnscaping challenge

The soap bubbles on my card are sparkly for the challenge =)

Ink colors used: "Intense Black" from Simon Says Stamp
Stamp sets used: "Love You Tons" and "Jessie's ABCs" from Lawn Fawn
Copic colors used: N0, N2, N3, B00, Y02, RV02, 0 (colorless blender)
