This month’s Essentials by Ellen Mix it Up Challenge is with Clearly Besotted.
Lucky for ME, I won a gift certificate from Ellen Hutson for last month’s Pin-Sights Challenge, so I was able to purchase another Essentials by Ellen stamp set.
No Bold Blooms for this challenge. 😉 This set is called Wish Big.
And, I have one Clearly Besotted stamp set. I am good to go!
I cut a mask using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillsides, to help me color the sky and the grass (using Distress Inks and a Heidi Swapp stencil). I drew the horizon line with a Copic Multiliner by tracing the mask. The hippo, party hat and sentiment were all embossed, and the hippo was colored with Copic markers. The lovely purple ribbon is from a previous Ellen Hutson order (you get a yard of ribbon as a thank you with an order – I have quite the stash!).
Here are my sky and grass masks:
