I am going to confess that I adore Mama Elephant…I bet you are saying “well I never see you create with their products” well that is because I hoard it, I sit and look at the cute & pretty designs that I never want to get dirty with ink (I know crazy right) So for this challenge I refused to buy anything new and actually ink up one of the sets I have been hoarding. I have used the super cute Rowdy Raccoons…another Tracy fact I LOVE raccoons. 


How cute is he ? I coloured him up using a couple of Copics from my huge collection of 10 pens & used the Co-ordinating dies to cut him out, I also added some gel pen details to him. 


The background I used Distress Oxides in – Cracked Pistachio, Squeezed Lemonade & Worn Lipstick and added some splatter detail with some water and also I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in gold

I used stamped the sentiment using Simon’s Clear ink & Fine Detail embossing powder and used Mama Elephants Landscape Trio Die to cut the little hill. 


To finish off I created a notecard with Simon’s Smoke Card and adhered the whole piece together. 

And there you go I finally inked up one of my hoarded sets and it wasn’t actually that painful to do 🙂 

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
