Mama Elephant Photo Challenge

Did you know there's a new Mama Elephant photo challenge!  Here's a look at the inspiration pic:)

I was inspired by the colorful, translucent colors, so I pulled out my colored vellums:)  I love these papers and I'm *trying* not to hoard them;)  I used the Landscape Trio dies to cut a variety of "waves".  I layered them and attached them to 2 card stock panels.  The whole thing is lifted up over the card front with foam tape.  That way the layers really feel like waves and you get a bit of light behind them:)  The last step was to add a tiny bit of sugar glitter here and there.  I picked one of my favorite sentiments from the Everyday Greetings set.  That's really how I feel today!


I hope you play along with the challenge!  Check out the Mama Elephant blog for details:) 

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  8. This is totally mesmerising! I seriously can't stop staring at it! It's almost like a lava lamp or one of those old kids' toys with the coloured water with floating plastic shapes (which you probably a) didn't have over there, or b) can't understand what I'm talking about as I'm explaining it so badly!).

    Anyway. I love it.
