Zentangle Elephant - finished

As promised I sat at the table until I had finished my little elephant card.  Using a fine stamp edge tool I took him 'out' of the piece of parchment on which he had been created so that I had just the elephant ready to mount on any background that I wished.  I made  a frame using fresh parchment and a simple border that I created.  I then wanted to 'ground' him so I used my 'grass' die and cut out a strip in black to put behind him.  I stuck this to the new frame and then mounted the elephant using Perga glue very sparingly just on the very edges so that it doesn't show.  Finally I used a Spellbinder die to cut out a frame  in black card.

Here he is:
I hope you like him.  I have an owl, a cockerel and a dove to do in the series so I have plenty to do.
