Mama Elephant... This Is How We Do It

You know after reading this title you are totally singing the song! hehehe!  And we are live with Day 3: Mama Elephant Explosion on my blog... Here is my third take of  Mama Elephant's sketch Challenge:

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Mama Elephant
Watermark Ink Pad: Versamark
Dye Ink: PTI
Distress Ink: Ranger
Flair: Paper Play Studios
Chalk: Pebbles Inc.

Fun little technique:  This stamp set comes with 3 balloon images: one completely open, one completely filled in, and one with polka dots.  For this card I used the open image first and make my pattern.  I then took the filled in balloon image and stamped it over top of the opened images with my watermark ink pad.  I colored in my balloons with various chalk colors, and voila!  I love using chalk because you don't have to be so precise with it.

*I am also entering this into the Monday Craft Madness Challenge at Steals Network.

Thanks for stopping by and be on the look out for Day 4!
Happy Crafting!
