Tuesday with Toni - Mama Elephant Summer Splash

Mmm, can't you just feel those warm, sunny rays?  Let's celebrate summer together! As it happens, I'm also celebrating my birthday this week so am having a giveaway on my Instagram to share the joy of getting another year older. :)  Be sure to check that out after you've read about my card.

Today I'm using the Mama Elephant Summer Splash set for my cute poolside scene. You have mama having a little drinkie poo watching over her two kiddies--one sitting on the edge deciding whether to hop in and the other frolicking away. Adorable!

To start, I sponged the card base with Distress Oxide Salty Ocean then went over it again with the same color and a stencil (Visible Fibers from Top Flight Stamps).  I used Clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to the water.  I diecut the aperture from the card front using a die from Memory Box - Underwater Collage Die.

Next I stamped the Mama Elephant Summer Splash images using a Copic-friendly black ink and colored them up with Copics. Nothing says summer and my birthday week more than 4th of July red, white and blue.

To finish setting up the card front for the ellies, I sponged the MFT Radiating Rays stencil using Distress Oxide Mustard Seed and stamped the Mama Elephant Beach Chickies sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black.

I popped the card front up using foam tape.

I then adhered the Mama Elephant Summer Splash images to the card front using Gina K Connect Glue. I used the same glue to adhere the Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins.  Voila!

Feel free to check out my other creations on my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, or on my Instagram.  And, don't forget about my birthday giveaway, kindly sponsored by Doodlebugs. See you next week!
