I hope you have been having a great week :)  When I saw that the theme for this week's Simon Says Monday Challenge was Wild Things, I wanted to use one of my geometric animal stencils and ended up going with the fab elephant:

I used black soot distress oxide to ink through the stencil on to pale grey card and cut the elephant out.  I then took a piece of kraft card and randomly stamped parts of a text stamp over it and inked around the edges.  I then die cut a Tim Holtz mixed media number die along the edge and backed it with a mid grey card.  The sentiment is from Lesia Zgharda stamps.

I shall also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we need to make our own backgrounds.

I hope you like this card!

Thanks for stopping by, Sarah x
