Template Tuesday - Indian Princess

For a little while now, I've liked to draw people riding elephants. Maybe it's because I'm jealous of this guy, maybe it's because elephants are really cool to draw, I don't know, but that's what I drew whilst being bored in church this weekend.

Here's what the template will look like. Remember, you can either print this out directly onto the back of the paper you're going to cut or you can print it out onto another sheet and tape it directly to your paper. Either way works. Cut out the center (gray) areas first and then cut the outlines.

Here's the actual template: India Princess Papercut. Enjoy!

In other news, I got my first bad review on Etsy. Some lady accused me of not even drawing one of my cards. Should I send her her money back or just send her a new batch? Maybe I should just ask her. It would have been nice if she would have told me her problems before she muddied up my excellent feedback record.

Love your new drawing! I think that it was in rather poor taste for that woman to muddy up your perfect rating. When I've had problems (very few) I've always contacted the seller and it's been resolved. Sometimes people are just nasty. Sorry that she did that.

Man, that's pretty scary about the bad review on Etsy. I'd definitely get in touch with the lady to see what the problem is. I wouldn't send her anything until I found out what the problem was. I hope that Etsy can rectify the review if it is bogus. = (

Sorry to hear about your negative review on Etsy. We've gotten a couple, but have always managed to sort things out with the buyer. Often it's worthwhile to send a very polite and apologetic email and they'll 'kiss and make up' if you offer them a solution (like a discount on their next order, or whatever seems appropriate for the situation).

FYI - I love your elephant. He's very much like our Thai Elephant shadow puppet!

Bad review... seems weird to me. I understand your interest in elephants. i tried my hand at one recently, but mine was not as accurate as yours. :-) this cut is so fun!! hope you are well.
