So, I have had this Mama Elephant stamp set sitting in my ‘to be inked’ pile for a LONG time. I love the set, just never seemed to get around to using it for some reason. I finally inked it up & it didn’t disappoint! I love the gorgeous tree & the sentiment is really heartfelt.
I saw the inspiration photo for the current Mama Elephant challenge and knew I wanted to use the tree and play on the colors in the challenge for my watercolor background. The little butterfly is die cut from 3 pieces of vellum and colored on the back with various shades of blue and green and stapled in the center – it has really nice dimension and pulls all the colors together nicely. Bonus – it hides a tiny spot of not-so-perfect embossing!
