This is so Me

Hello.  Welcome.  I got some new stamps from Rubber Dance today.  A sentiment on the African Animals set just jumped out at me.  I also saw a sketch I liked over at ODBD and the Cheery Lynn challenge is black and orange.  It all went together like this......

I started by stamping the happy happy birthday sentiment from Rubber Dance Happy Birthday set using Butternut fresco finish paint on a black card base.

I cut Cheery Lynn Eloise Elephant from a piece of card I had previously painted.  I used the same card to stamp and emboss the sentiment from Rubber Dance African Animals.

  7. Great stamping in the background! Stamping with paint is not easy, words especially, but on a black background it's the only way... The elephant is gorgeous and the card he was die-cut from is perfect for it. Thanks for showing us at Vintage Stamping Challenges.
