Adorable Elephants

I received my order from My Favorite Things on Friday.  I could not wait to ink up this new set from Birdie Brown.  I am a little obsessed with her stamp line and each month I have to have her new stamps.   It is always the first thing that I ink up.   I decided to watercolor the images and background with Distress inks.

I used the new MFT watercolor stripes background and inked it up with Cracked Pistachio ink and spritzed it with water.   I used watercolor paper and got two backgrounds completed.  I used one for my card today and I will show you another card this week with this same set.   

I have been super busy and have a stack of new products to use.  I am looking forward to a break from work around Christmas and hoping that I am able to get lots of crafty time in.  There have been so many great releases.  I just need some time to get it all done :-).
