In the summer, going to the park, or outside anywhere in general to blow bubbles is my favorite thing to do. So when I saw this super cute Ella & Friends stamp set from Mama Elephant I knew I had to have it!
I created this card specifically for a good friend of mine who was going through a difficult time – and I included a coffee card inside as a little treat for her.
Here is my card:
To create the grass & sky scene, I first created masks for all of the images, including the bubbles! It was easy to do with plain post-it notes. I just stamped the images and cut them out and placed the post-it over top of the colored images. I used the foam blending tool to blend shabby shutters & mowed lawn for the grass, and broken china with tumbled glass for the sky. To make the clouds, I used a die cut of the balloons from the Up & Away creative cuts as a mask while I was blending in the two blue inks.
Ella was colored with Spectrum Noir markets IG1, IG2 & IG3. Her little bunny helper was colored with BG2. The bubbles turned out really well using TB1, TB2 & TB3 and topped off with a white gel pen to make the shiney pop out.
