May Release STAMPEDE



Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop!

Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!




www.mamaelephant.com

For the Stampede, I went overboard... by my standards at least! It's my big kid's birthday this week, so I decided to put a wee extra effort into a super special card. Hey, she's kind of hard to impress at 11 years old already!

I created this easy tri-fold card using The Cat's Meow and Celebration Balloons, as well at Little Cat Agenda and sentiment from Birthday Wishes.

The background was created by blending inks together and freely splashing water droplets on top. I can never get over how neat this technique looks!

So, here's the card when the recipient gets it... Nothing extraordinary right?


But then you unveil this cool scene! And all those kitties at the bottom all wishing you Hooray, Happy birthday!


I used a glitter pen to draw in the balloon strings, it was a nice touch without being too much had I used black. All images were colored with Copic markers.

I thought the sentiment from Birthday Wishes is perfect, haha, cracks me up every time. :)
