Today I broke out a Lawn Fawn set I HAD TO HAVE back in May, and I finally used it to make this:
I began by stamping and die-cutting the elephants. I love that they face each other! I used three different T (Toner) Copic markers to color them.
In addition to finally using a stamp set I've had for seven months, I pulled out my A Muse Skinny Oval I've had forever and used it to ground the elephants instead of just scribbling with a Copic marker. It was stamped with Simon Says Stamp Fog ink, which is a bit warmer grey than the Toner Copics, but I'm okay with that.
After I stamped the sentiment and heart from the set, I trimmed down the white panel and rounded the corners. I might have done this three times before I got it to the size I wanted.
I chose a gradient striped paper for the background, and felt it needed a spot of another color in addition to a vertical element. I took my cue from the green papers in the same 6x6 pack and put a piece of washi tape under the white panel. Wow, I used five whole inches of washi tape. Only 4,857,392,048 miles of tape left. ;/
This was pretty quick to make, and I'm happy with how it came out.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: A Muse Skinny Oval wood stamp (bought back when you could buy A Muse stamps in stores and online from their site), miscellaneous washi tape, and the following:
