Sunday Stamps with Mama Elephant!

This week at Sunday Stamps we have a fun Sketch for you. This is one you will want to add to you sketch book to refer to later.  I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.. it's anything goes this week. And the MarkerPop Brights Challenge

I love this new set from Mama Elephant called Bear hugs.. It's great for kids cards or I used it for a Father's Day card. 

I created a Olive card base and then I sponged the edge with some Distress ink and then I added a panel of pattern paper. I sponged the edges of both pieces of my pattern papers with more colors of Distress ink to make them pop. I die cut a white circle and using some Distress ink I created a sky and added a piece of olive card stock that I trimmed free hand and sponged the edges for my grass. 

I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto the lower right corner with some black ink. Then I stamped the Bear & moon images onto a piece of Card stock and colored them in with Copics and using the coordinating dies I cut them out. The bears and moon images are adhered directly to the circle and then I added the circle with some dimensionals. 

Be sure to head over to the Sunday Stamps blog and see what the other Design Team members created this week. The challenge is open until March 13th@ 6pm Est.
