Mama Elephant March Stampede!

The new Mama Elephant collection is available right now! Visit the store to see all of the amazing stamps and dies that are part of their March release.



Today is stampede day!

I used quite a few images from the new set, just hatched.  The images are so adorable! A lot of creative masking have the critters sitting inside their eggshells, with the broken tops lying beside them.  They've popped up to say hello.

All of the images were then masked and I sponged over a sunburst stencil to create the background.  I used the same soft brown ink, but more saturated on the rays than the rest.  I then sprayed the top half of the card with a gold mist. It has a subtle sparkle in real life.

I hope you like it! As always, there is a giveaway! To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away one of each of the new stamp sets. The winners will be chosen at random from among the stampeding blogs. The winners will be announced on the ME blog, on the last day of the stamp highlights. You have up to 3 chances to qualify for a win.  Just leave a separate comment for each:
