Mama Elephant and hopefully an Improvement

If you’ve been with me since the beginning of this blog ( unlikely- but a few have!), you might recognise this card project which was one of my first on this blog.
Over at Make The Day Special, they’ve a challenge to take an old card of yours and CASE yourself. It’s quite an interesting process. Apart from the fact I was quite embarrassed looking back at some of my attempts, it was interesting seeing my creative journey.
Here’s how I cased it!

It’s a distress inked background that’s sprayed with water. A, it gives a lovely touch, but B (& more importantly) it hides some of my dodgy blending!
The set is the Hunny Bunny one from Mama Elephant and I hope you can deduce a little progression!

Better go- I’m off to a Variety show with son no.1. He’s doing some puppeteering! I’m sure there’ll be a related blog post- I can just feel it!

    Wow, you sure have taken your card-making level to a great new height since your first card on the blog! I love the background and inking…and of course, the bunny’s picnic “blanket” is lovely!! Hope you enjoyed the show your son!

    So sweet! I love the splatters on the background and I do love this Hunny Bunny set! We have all improved loads over time!

    Good you got your mojo back Karen, mine has gone missing while on holiday. Nice spotlight in the card making magazine too.
    Best regards, Penny.

    Both cards are beautiful, love the sky on card 1, love the splatter technique for the sky on card 2. Looks like they are sitting in the rain, love it!

    Enjoy your day, looking forward to your blog post:-) xxx

    Water splattered distress ink never fails to delight me!
