Mama Elephant Inspiration #5

Hey everyone,

Thanks for dropping by again. I have another card for you from the Mama Elephant photo challenge. This is the photo that we use as our inspiration, and you can read more about the challenge HERE.


My Card today is inspired by the colours in the photo.  I also wanted to add some texture to the card that is inspired by the sand in the picture.ME4

I thought it would be fun to use Tim Holtz Rock Candy glitter on my clouds. I cut my clouds out of velum using the ME Landscape Trio die set and used glossy accents to glue the Distress Glitter on.  I set it asideto dry and when I came back to it, the velum had curled and wasn’t really laying straight. I need to figure something else for next time. Overall it added some nice demention and sparkle to the card.

I decided that if I am going to do sparkels on the clouds, that the WHOLE card was going to have a shine! I used the ME Femme Frame die cuts to cut my panel, and then used the Heidi Swapp color shine to create my background. I sprayed the sun rays using the Tim Holtz Ray stencil and the Heidi color shine in gold. It created such a nice effect.

I used the hiedi swampp mists to paint my balloons, and used Vintage photo to water-colour the cute fox!

I adhered it all together with glossy accents and pop dots and ta-da that’s about it! Pretty darn cute if I say so myself!

Thanks for dropping by, see you again soon! For my next post, there will be a YouTube video!
