DCM - Animal

Well I am still quite fuzzy today & have spent most of it laying down reading magazines & watching DVD's. It has taken me all day to think up an idea for this latest DCM dare, Animal.
Papers are DCWV, Old World stack. I inked up a word stamp & gold embossed it down each side of the red paper. I then cut the elephant from brown paper & edged it with brown ink for definition. The red "cloth" saddle on her back, (I decided she was a female elephant, Clarrie!) was also embossed with the gold word stamp. I have no energy to embellish this further but Im quite happy with it how it is.
