Mama Elephant and Me Challenge

Hello everyone!
I’m back with a quick post...I’ve been playing with my new favorite Mama Elephant stamp set, and I created a card for their Current 'Mama Elephant and Me' Challenge. This month, they are using this inspiration photo:



I was inspired by the colors in the photo, so I used my Copics and colored the same little girl at 2 different angles, then straight forward. I also love all the tiny ‘accent’ stamps in this set, so I thought it would be fun to use them for a few of the apertures.



I’m also enjoying my new Pretty Pink Posh Tag, and used it to create the apertures for this card. The stars were cut with foil cardstock and the ME Confetti die. For fun, I made a little orange pom-pom for my gift box, the same as what is shown in the inspiration photo!

So, that’s it for me today...I hope everyone had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by ~
Barb

Stamps: Mama Elephant - In My Heart
