Today I've got a new card share showcasing the brand new Mama Elephant Splendid Stamp Set. I combined the Splendid stamped greeting with the panda and balloons from Pandamonium for this sweet and simple card!
To stamp my greeting, I inked up only part of the greeting with SSS Black Ink by masking off the script style lettering with post it tape, removing the masking tape and stamping the image. Then I cleaned my stamp, masked off the words "every" and "single" and inked up the rest of the greeting with Salty Ocean Distress Ink, spritzed it with a Mini Mister filled with water 3-4 times and stamped the greeting on Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper. Even though this gives the greeting a nice watercolored look, it still wasn't quite enough "distressed watercoloring" for me so I grabbed a wet paintbrush before the ink dried and wet the Distress Ink more, pulling the ink outside the lines a bit, then I set it aside to dry.
I stamped the panda and balloon strings from Pandamonium on smooth white cardstock using SSS Black Ink. I stamped the balloons using Versamark Ink and heat set them with white embossing powder. To add color to the balloons, I created "watercolors" from Distress Inks on my craft mat and used a paintbrush to apply the color inside the embossed image. I set them aside to dry and then die cut all the images with the coordinating Pandamonium Creative Cuts dies.
