Mama Elephant August Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello, my friends! Hope you are having a lovely week so far. Here is a card that I made for Mama Elephant August Photo Inspiration Challenge. Here is the inspiration photo.


I love the bright and delightful photo and here is what I came up with!


I was drawn to the colors (pink, coral, yellow and black) and tried to keep my card design as clean as possible since there is a lot of "white space" in the photo. To make the background, I first scribbled some pink gelato on the card base and went over it with a watered brush. I think I was trying to get a watercolor look, but the gelato didn't react to water the way I expected. It was totally fine though, I was just experimenting.


I then took the solid triangle from Trifecta set and swiped a yellow gelato directly on the stamp, spritzed some water before stamping over the pink area. The XOXO is from Big Words set. Some Japanese washi tapes, a paper doily remnant and a few sequins helped finishing the card. This is a bit different from what I usually made, but I had fun making it. Hope you likey! =)
