Welcome to My Favorite Things December Release Countdown!
Birdie Brown starts off Day 5 with Adorable Elephants--a set of pachyderms
that have matching dies, sold separately. I couldn't resist making two cards
with this oh-so-cute stamp set, and I know that I'll be making more.
I was trying to channel my MFT teammie, Kay, who creates fabulous
watercolored backgrounds. I brushed the surface of the watercolor
card stock with water, then added some splotches of Distress inks.
After the panel was dry, I spattered some white paint over the surface.
The little ellie was stamped and colored with Zig brush markers. I stamped
the butterfly and flowers and added the elephant with dimensional tape.
The card was finished off with a strip of patterned paper and the sentiment
that was white embossed and trimmed into a banner.
I used the same watercolor technique on the background for the second card,
and just changed up the colors.
Both card bases are the new Cement Gray card stock which is fast becoming
one of my favorite neutral card colors. Plus, it's the perfect "elephant shade", no?
