Mama Elephant & Me Challenge


Hi there!  Today I have a card to share with you for the Mama Elephant & Me Challenge.  This month's challenge is Watercoloring and Birthdays.  I am loving watercolors lately, and I just got the adorable new Carnival Cupcakes and Carnival Toppers and couldn't wait to play along! 

I wanted a soft pastel watercolor wash for behind my images, so I took some Distress Inks on an acrylic block and lots of water and brushed on light stripes of color and let them dry.  Then I cut out the panel using the Femme Frames die set.  I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the images, added some Wink of Stella pen and glossy accents to the cherry, and adhered it to my card base.  This card is being mailed, so I had to keep it more flat than I normally like, but I think it turned out cute.  I can't wait to play with these images some more! :)
