love is the bridge

3 July 2014

Ok so I admit I am a big Mama Elephant (ME) fan! I remember discovering their blog and products and am seriously wowed each month with what the DT comes up with. And now they are introducing monthly challenges!

So I couldn't resist getting out my ME stamps and dies and playing along. This is my take on the photo inspiration ~

First I got out my distress inks and created the back ground, over which I stamped the cityscape image from Central Park stamp set. Then I constructed a shaker card using the bridge image from Sightseeing stamp set. I stamped this on a transparency and on vellum and embossed in Ranger Platinum powder. I also stamped the sentiment from this set in the same embossing powder using Versamark ink.  I added some sprinkles from my Papertrey Ink kit to create an allusion of water and foam under the bridge. Finally I popped it all on some SimonSaysStamp card stock.

This was our inspiration ~

Thanks for looking and have a great day.x
