Bonne fete

Making a Birthday card for a French speaking little boy turning 8 today :) With Viva Las Vegas and Designs by Ryn stamps.

The sitting elephant is stamped in black versafine with white gel pen and copics added.  The Designs by Ryn sea bubbles stamp is stamped in white craft ink. I like how this gorgeous elephant is blowing sea bubbles :)  The background is made by dripping dylusions sprays onto a wet piece of water color paper. I added a little stenciling with a Crafters Workshop numbers stencil and I doodled around the edge.

I am entering this into the VLVS Mood Board challenge, I love to take on a challenge like that, to use the colors, and suggested techniques, images etc. Here is the challenge
We'd like to inspire you with words like DOTSletters and alphas, grungeinsects, moths, butterflies, spray paint, drips, splatters, paintdistressed, scribbles, blackwhite, limegreenblueturquoise, and more!
I have the colors, letters, spray paints and drips, scribbles and the essence of dots. lol.

I am also entering this into the Designs by Ryn Challenges, anything goes. I actually won sea bubbles in a challenge a while ago, its the first time I have used it so thought I would link up :)

I hope this card is a big hit at the party later today and the Birthday boy loves it.
