Spread Happiness (Mama Elephant)
I hope you are all enjoying a lovely and creative weekend. I still had the Mama Elephant stamp set Up and Away on my craft table so decided to make the card which had been in my mind before I got side tracked by ball pit cards. lol
My idea was to make a moving card especially when I saw the sentiment “Spread Happiness wherever you go”. I had all the pieces almost ready to assemble when I decided that the cotton thread might not be strong enough to pull the little critter across the card. At that moment I decide to anchor all the pieces and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
Here’s the first card…
Of course I always stamp up (and usually I colour them too) multiple images when I create so I decided to try my moving card again but this time I would I wouldn’t separate the balloons and the strings. I was partially worried by the appearance of the white behind the string and toyed with the idea of sponging ink but now that it is finished I’m not unhappy with the white.
Here’s the card…
And as the critter flies across the card…
I’m sorry the photographs aren’t the best – one of the downsides to being a nighttime crafter, especially during winter.
Hope you all have a wonderful day! I’m super excited as I am off to play with Dingo puppies tomorrow. *Squeal*
