Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Sunny Skies

***please scroll down for my Avery Elle post***

Hey everyone!  Today is the first day of the Mama Elephant May release highlights and the whole DT is showcasing the set that you saw here yesterday called Sunny Skies!   (Which is available on the site NOW by the way)  Yesterday, I used the Sunny Skies stamps the conventional way.  Today, I took a slightly different turn!  Here's the full stamp set here...


You know I love stamps that can do double duty!  So I flipped the balloon over and used it as a vase!  Lucky for me the flowers from Cup of Wishes were the perfect scale:)  I'm definitely not the first one to try this trick, but this was the first time I've ever tried it!  The flowers were stamped on using a mask and colored in with Copics.  The lovely handwritten sentiment is from the set Tree Friends.  



Thanks for stopping by!  I hope that you get a chance to drop by the rest of the DT to see what fun they had with this fun set!

Mahalo and Aloha,
