Mama Elephant February Stampede



Hello, welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop!
Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

Don't you love this February release? Serious...I love them all!
And today, my cards are using super cute stamp set "Space Bears"



Here, I'm using watercolor paint and masking fluid to make the background.
First, I randomly making dots using masking fluid on Canson XL - Aquarelle watercolor paper and then let it dry. After that, I'm painting with Gansai Tambi watercolor and wait until the paint dry before I peel of the masking fluid.



I colored the bears with copic marker, the stars and the sentiment was heat embossed in white.


Mama Elephant supplies :
Stamps : Space Bears | Labeled Messages
Creative Die Cuts : Space Bears | Lots of Stars
