Mama Elephant Highlight: Many Thanks

Good morning! Today's our last day of Mama Elephant August release highlights. But the fun continues on the Mama Elephant blog, so be sure to keep visiting to see what the rest of the design team creates throughout the month.

Many Thanks is perfect to tell someone thank you in so many different ways. I created this card using two sentiments that work perfectly stacked. To create the background, I first cut out triangles and masked the watercolor paper before adding a soft wash of watercolor. I loved how it was a single layer card, but then I decided to add sequins to give it some added dimension.

Materials used: Mama Elephant Many Thanks; Faber Castell GelsticksMetallic GelsticksGelatosMemento ink in Tuxedo Black, watercolor papersequins

Be sure to stop by the Mama Elephant blog to see what the rest of the design team created with this set.

Thanks for stopping by!
