Mama Elephant has just started a new challenge blog called Mama Elephant and Me and their first challenge is to create a project using a Mama Elephant stamp that is inspired by the following image:
I decided to make a birthday layout for the challenge. I don't normally stamp too much on my layouts so this was a "double" challenge for me. I used the Mama Elephant Up and Away Stamp Set and the Wake A Wish Stamp Set.
To create the title block, I first stamped the Monkey and Balloons from the Up and Away Stamp Set and colored the images with Copic Markers. I then stamped the "Go and Celebrate" sentiment from the Make A Wish Stamp Set on vellum with VersaMark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I layered the vellum over my image. The rest of the layout came together fairly quickly using various items in my stash in the light blue, orange, green and yellow color scheme.
I hope this inspires you to use some stamps on your layout. Thanks for stopping by!
