I stamped and kept some open clouds in the sky and then a few hearts from the Sending Love set (used the corner of my ink pads to stamp only the heart in the word "love", which was easy to do and required no masking.) I used a light grey ink to stamp the baby elephants. I wanted the outline to hold its value but not compete with my colors. The sentiment was stamped in Distress Ink and then with a detailed watercolor brush, blended the words because it otherwise didn't stamp the best with that ink. In this case, this worked perfectly. To finish this off the baby elephants and the hearts got a pretty shimmery coat of Wink of Stella.
Here are photos and links to the sets I've used for today's card! Aren't these great?
Hope you've had a great week and will have a wonderful, joy filled weekend! Blessings!
