I haven't used the Ella & Friends stamp set from Mama Elephant for a while, so that's what I did today.
I started by stamping all the critters in the set and I also stamped the little umbrella. I colored all the images with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Elephant: W2 - W5
Bunny: E00 - E11 - E21
Hedgehog: E25 - E29/ E00 - E11
Mouse: E71 - E77
Umbrella: BG23 - BG49/ V04 - V06
I die cut all the images with my Cuttlebug and I went over to my background. I took some Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock and wetted the paper. I didn't add any water to the borders, I wanted to leave an egde. I applied Distress Inks with a paint brush. I used three colors. I started with Evergreen Bough on the top, then I added some Peacock Feathers and to the bottomt I used Salty Ocean. I made sure the three colors blended well. I dried the panel with my heat tool and applied another layer of watercolor. Again heated it with my heat tool.
I wanted to heat emboss the sentiment with some Silver Embossing Powder from Ranger. I first used a powder tool, because else the embossing powder will stick to places I don't want it. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed it with the embsossing powder.
I assembles the card by adhering all the images with some foam tape. I added the panel to a blue cardbase and rounded off the top right corner with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.
This is a perfect card to send to a dear friend, just to let them know that you're there for them.
