Ocean Distress Oxide Background with Mama Elephant
Hello there! Today I’m sharing a card I made for the Mama Elephant Top Card Contest! I’m using the Mermaid Kisses Stamp Set and since I don’t have the dies to this set I had to do some major fussy cutting! If you are looking for some Fussy Cutting Tips check out THIS POST! Don’t you love this Ocean Distress Oxide Background with Mama Elephant Card.
I stamped all my images in Black Memento Ink and Stamped onto my Copic Xpress it Blending Card using my Mini Misti.

I love how liberating it is to color hair on mythological characters, and you did a fantastic job with it! I also loved the gradient you used to show the depths of the water. A really fun card all the way around! Thanks for playing with us at A Place to Start!
