Mama Elephant Christmas!

Happy Thursday crafty friends! I went a little loco with the holiday Mama Elephant release... As I am sure many of you crafters out there can understand! Lol.

The little bear on a tree stump is my favourite little guy from the A Beary Christmas stamp set. He is so cute with his candle!


When I first saw this stamp all I had in mind was this little guy looking for Santa :) I started by stamping a Hero Arts Layering tree. I then masked a "moon" and added some Mustard Seed distress ink for the glow. I then added a smaller mask to add the candle glow and used the same mustard seed. I then reversed the mask and used Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans Distress inks for the sky.  

I stamped my image and coloured him in with Copics and added white detail to his scarf and fussy cut him so he wouldn't have a white border. I then found the Santa and sleigh stamp from a Lawn Fawn set and stamped it over the sky and moon and added red Nuvo Drops to the nose on Rudolph of course!


I then decided to use the Mama Elephant detailed die from the Union Square set to frame the scene and a stitched scalloped border die for the top and bottom.  I then added snow to the bottom of the scene. I put everything on top of an MFT Cherry Crisp A2 sized panel.

Added the sentiment from the Sentiments from a Yeti set to finish it off.
Thanks for taking the time!
