MAMA ELEPHANT 3RD ANNIVERSARY STAMPEDE - DAY 3!

Welcome to Mama Elephant's 3rd Anniversary Stampede!
The new release is live and available for purchase in the shop (www.mamaelephant.com) right now!


I created this card using Twinkle Towns and a sentiment from Jingle Greetings. The dotted frame of the card is cut from the largest die from Pizazz Pieces. It certainly does a bit of a pizazz to the design, doesn't it?


So, I stamped all the images with waterproof black ink on watercolor cardstock. Then I went in and loosely colored the pines, not each single one, but a general wash over each section without caring if it spilled over. That's the beauty of a watercolored piece, you don't have to be perfect. :)

Twinkle Towns and some other new items are currently out of stock! We expect most restocks to start trickling in next week. We're also running behind on shipping because of the enormous response to this release! Please expect up to 7 days for orders to ship. We are doing the best we can and working overtime! Thank you so, so, so much for your tremendous support!
