You Are My Happ- SYS2 bonus day

I’m catching up on the Stretch Your Stamps 2 lessons from Online Card Classes. I’ve spent a couple afternoons in the last couple weeks playing with ‘color me’ stamps. I gave this card to the man who makes me most happy on our 21st wedding anniversary. It’s similar in design to Stephanie Klauk’s card from the SYS2 bonus day. I also used her mirror stamping technique to create the frogs.

Supplies

Today, I played with this cute elephant, making a baby card and a thinking of you card. Similar to the technique Debby Hughes shared on the bonus day of SYS2, I used Distress Inks on watercolor paper to create a watercolor wash that I stamped the elephant and balloon on. I then fussy cut them out and paper pieced them together.
