Colour Layering Elephants

My favourite animal is the elephant so I just could not resist this brand new Hero Arts stamp set with coordinating dies. Here is my first card using the set:
The elephants were really easy to line up and stamp. I started with the solid background and used London Fog Memento ink. Then I stamped the shading stamp on top using Memento Grey Flannel ink. The third layer is the simple black outline. I used my stamp press and was surprised to find how easy the stamps were to line up perfectly.
I used the coordinating dies to cut out the elephants and balloon. I have layered the elephants onto an embossed resist stencilled background made with the map stamp from the Creative Stamping Life’s and Adventure set.
I think I will be using these elephants a lot! Watching elephants in their natural habitat is on my bucket list so this set will be ideal for scrapbook layouts in the future as well as visits to the zoo!

    A wonderful example of why the stamp press is such a great piece of equipment; I wouldn’t be without mine! Super card! x
