Mama Elephant Color Challenge 01

Dear Reader,

Mama Elephant is having their first color challenge...the blog post is HERE.  I had first discovered Mama Elephant about a month or so ago and was immediately smitten with their designs.  As I love the color scheme (in fact my rooms are in reds and aquas) and I *needed* to ink up some of their fun stamps I decided to try the challenge even though I had somehow forgotten about it until last night.

I was watching "Now, Voyager" with Bette Davis and perhaps it influenced me a bit.  Do you see the little stamped piece of washi over the aqua heart?  Like Charlotte in the movie, this little heart is mended and the healed heart is even more dazzling than before...or so I like to imagine was my unconscious reasoning for my design choices.    

Regardless, this is a sweet little card celebrating love in all its many facets which is pretty appropriate as we look at beginning a new year.  I used the hearts and arrows from On Target, tag from No Peeking and wood clip and washi tape from We Click.  I double stamped the wood clip to give the appearance of depth and mimic the real was immediate love with that one stamp.

If I don't get a chance later, I wish all of you a new year brimming with laughter, good health, possibilities and most of all love in all its incarnations.

Happy creating,

Stamps: No PeekingOn Target and We Click, Mama Elephant
Ink: speckled egg and cough syrup, Jenni Bowlin for Ranger
Cardstock: white, Georgia-Pacific
Other: diamond Stickles, Ranger; silver glitter fabric tape; foam dimensional adhesive, Stampin' Up!; corner chomper, We R Memory Keepers
