Art with Heart Team Blog Hop - Lucky Elephant

Today, I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talent ladies at Art with Heart Team.  We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016-2017 Annual and 2017 Occasions Catalogues.

Selected retiring products have discounted of up to 50% off but they are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these item on 31 May.  You don't want to miss out - ask me how!

I am featuring the Lucky Elephant stamp set, unfortunately the clear mount set has already sold out but the wood mount is still available.  I was inspired to finally ink up this set by the very talented New Zealand Demonstrator, Angela Meiritz-Reid who displayed this technique at OnStage Live in Brisbane in November.

I stamped the image in Smoky Slate and then with my Night of Navy Stampin' Write Marker I traced around the rubber and wow what an amazing result.

  3. The elephant looks fabulous in the Smoky Slate and Night Of Navy. What a great technique.
