It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to play along with a challenge for fun but I saw that the November Mix It Up challenge for Ellen Hutson uses Mama Elephant and decided to give it a try!
I really enjoyed putting this card together! I started off by heat-embossing Ellen Hutson’s Mondo Magnolia twice on watercolor paper with gold tinsel embossing powder. I used the coordinating dies to cut the largest flower but then fussy cut the next layer so there wouldn’t be a white edge. I used the Carmine Red zig clean color real brush marker on the top layer and the Light Carmine zig clean color real brush marker on the bottom layer. After applying a little color to the inside of each petal I blended it out with a water brush.
Then I stamped the leaf from Mama Elephant’s Freestyle Florals onto black cardstock and embossed it with the same gold tinsel embossing powder. I also stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Up and Away and embossed it with super fine gold embossing powder. I layered the magnolia onto the black cardstock with foam mounting tape and added a sprinkling of pink sequins to finish the card!
And before I forget…a happy mail update! I forgot to post about it yesterday but I mailed another card yesterday and two today which brings my total to…
