Mama Elephant & ME August Challenge


Happy Friday, all! =) It's the beginning of a new month that means it's also the beginning of a new challenge over at Mama Elephant & Me! The new challenge theme is the trendy watercoloring + birthdays! here is my take on the challenge.


I used the solid feather from Fair Feathers set for my card.


I tried the set of Sai Japanese watercolor brushes that I got when I was in Taiwan. The colors were scribbled directly onto the stamp, I then added a few spritz of water and stamped off the first impression on scratch paper. Some more water was added to the residual ink then stamped onto the white cardstock panel.


The sentiment is included in the Fair Feathers set. I also added some color splatters and matching sequins for a little interest.

That's all from me. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this challenge over at Mama Elephant & Me!  There is no limit on how many entries you can submit, but you must use a Mama Elephant stamp to be eligible to win the prize. The winner will win a stamp set of choice. You have until August 28th to enter for a chance to win! I can't wait to see what you come up with for this challenge! =)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
