Did the giant hand-lettering in the new Mama Elephant "make a wish" set knock your socks off when you saw it? It did that for me when I got it in the mail. I adore this set.
My photos are hit-or-miss these days, aren't they? bah. We're still getting snowy days in Montreal, but at least it's still somewhat light out at 6pm. Fingers crossed that coming up with a picture that matches the real life card gets a bit easier.... soon.
That being said, you'll have to squint to see some of the details in this card. I stamped the big greeting twice: once in blush pink ink, and then shadowed over-top with a gold embossing. The balloon and bunny were stamped in memento desert sand ink, and colored with the no-line coloring technique. There was some bleeding (the balloon doesn't look perfectly circular) but I actually like that. It looks hand-painted, and slightly vintage this way.
I dotted the eyes back in with a copic multiliner pen, and used liquid appliqué for the pom pom on the party hat and his little bunny tail. I still love that stuff, I can't help it.
Do you see how the bottom half of the sentiment overlaps the bunny? It wouldn't have worked out if I stamped the bunny with a darker ink.
I hope you like it! Check out the ME blog for even more "make a wish" inspiration.
