Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Group - Progressive Challenge Part 2 - 23 March to 5 April 2015

It is time for Part 2 of the Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Group Progressive Challenge.  Part 1 is whereby you get to make an "anything goes" card/creation as long as it uses a Sweet Pea Stamps image.  If you take part in Part 1 you will be sent an image free to use for Part 2.  The image given free for Part 2 is by Sweet Pea Stamps owner Lynette's daughter, Courtney McAnsh.  The image is called "Zentangle Elephant" and is available as a digital stamp and a rubber stamp.  If you didn't take part in Part 1 but want to take part in Part 2 you need to go to the Sweet Pea Stamps Store and purchase the image.
I decided to decorate a page of a large journal my son bought me last year.  I love the big pages to create on.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and highlighted Stickles to add some sparkle on the elephants and also added Glossy Accents to the eyes.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Stormy Sky distress ink and used a Sheena Douglass dot stamp with two different shades of blue chalk ink around the images.
The backing papers I have used from my stash and I had printed out a while ago so I am sorry but I have forgotten where they are from.  I kept the colour scheme very bright and cheery.

I have finished the journal page off with some Tim Holtz die-cut flowers, gems, Joanna Sheen banner die-cut, Craftwork Cards sentiment, wide lade, stitched ribbon and I have edged it all with faux stitching and the work "friends" in four corners (yes I don't like my writing but I think sometimes it is nice to hand write things on our creations).

I am entering this journal page into the following challenges:
