Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight - Comic Sayings
Hi! I am back today with an underwater card showing off a new stamp set from Mama Elephant. Comic Sayings is chocked full of sentiments for different occasions. Let me just start off by saying how versatile it is! I saw this as a perfect opportunity to ink up a couple of other sets that I had in stash that I haven't had a chance to use yet. I hope that you like it!
To start my card, I stamped images from Little Mermaiden Agenda and Mermaid Kisses and colored them using Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating creative cuts to die cut them out.
Next, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock down to fit behind the Slim Comic Strip die cut. Using Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, and Mermaid Lagoon Oxide Inks, I ink blended the panel. I then used a wave stencil to add more interest to the background and flicked on some Mermaid Lagoon for good measure. For the sandy bottom, I again used Bristol Smooth Cardstock and cut two sloping pieces using the Landscape Trio - Creative Cuts. I ink blended the pieces using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo and flicked on Vintage Photo using a small paint brush.
I stamped a sentiment from Mermaid Kisses at the top of the background panel using the same brown ink that I stamped the images with. For the speech bubbles, I stamped several sentiments from Comic Sayings onto white cardstock and die cut them out using Let's Chat - Creative Cuts. I also die cut the corresponding bubbles again from the same grey cardstock that I used for the frame to create a shadow for the speech bubbles. As a finishing touch, I added some iridescent bubbles to the scene.
That's it for my card today. Thank you for visiting! Don't forget to swing by the Mama Elephant Blog to see the projects created by the design team. I have listed and linked the products to the Mama Elephant Shop that I used below for your convenience. Have a great day!
