Anthropomorphic Elephant

I love this quirky images from Katzelkraft a stamp company in France, there's a whole set of animals on human bodies (Anthropomorphs) that come in the stamp set.   By the way the sentiment is also from Katzelkraft.
For this card I used some corrugated card and tried the inlay die technique, running it through the cutting plates flattened the bumps a little but I still like the look.  The stitched tag die is  from MFT and the circle loops die are from Simon Says Stamp.  I used shiny gold card and  Delicata gold ink to make the card a little brighter.  I was introduced to Delicata ink pads by my friend Loll from Stamping with Loll, it's so shiny you don't need to emboss it.   Once the tag was re-assembled with double sided tape to hold the inlay cuts I stamped it using Ranger archival ink using  a clear magic single stamp called Shipped Scripts
I'm entering this in theCAS MixUp February challenge stamping corrugated card and your choice (mine is inlaid die cut), Snippets playground with my corrugated card, I've had it for ages and keep snipping off chunks and the Craftstampers magazine January challenge anything goes.
I hope you like this quirky look if you do I'd love to hear from you 😏
