A Legendary Card – Mama Elephant

Hi everyone! I was super excited to see the new My and My Legend stamp and couldn’t wait to create a magical pastel starry sky to go with it. It has lots of sparkle elements with the foil and Stickles, which was a bit hard to capture on camera. But trust me, it is there!

Before I’m diving into the cardmaking process, I want to mention we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts. The theme of this month is “Food and Drinks. Head over to Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a prize!

First I stamped the images from Me and My Legend on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with Copic markers:

  • Dragon: BV02, BV00, BV000, BG57, BG53, BG11, BG0000
  • Girl: RV13, RV11, RV000, Y000, E43, E41, E40, E11, E00

On the clouds I added a magical touch with Stickles Stardust. On the dress and on the dragon I also added a bit of shimmer with a glitter pen, but unfortunately the photo does not capture that.

For the background I did galaxy like ink blending with Distress Oxide Shaded Lilac, Salvaged Patina, and Saltwater Taffy. To make it a magical background, I used the Sparkle and Shine hot foil plate and aura foil. As I was a bit impatient with waiting for the background to be dry, it did not foil perfectly. So if you want to replicate this card, keep that in mind.

The background I adhered on Mermaid cardstock, and the images I adhered with foam squares. The sentiment I nestled in the tail of the dragon which really makes it part of the scene.

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
