out of this world

Can I just say that I love Mama Elephant stamps?!   Their images remind me of those Sanrio characters that I loved from back in the day...the Little Twin Stars and Tuxedo Sam were my faves.  I used two Mama Elephant sets and the distress ink technique that I learned in Summer Card Camp 2 to create this card.

This card is for one of my dear friends, my party-planner partner in crime.  She always comes up with fun food-themed party ideas or any idea to get our friends together.  Some of my top NYC memories are because of her -- the 80s backyard boogie, Thanksigivng leftover throwdown, and Old School Play Day in Brooklyn's Prospect Park -- all her ideas, and I just helped to execute.   She has such a magnetic personality -- we're all just drawn to her energy, fun spirit, and sass.  It's time that I say thank you.

    1. Thanks! Although I think I had beginner's luck on the distress ink technique:) I was really pleased how the brown planet turned out.
