Make ME Laugh...

Hi everybody,

Yee-haa, Mama Elephant have started their Challenge back up!  However, this time, there's a difference.  Instead of linking up via their Challenge Blog, we now have to link up to Flickr.  Something new to me, but it looks like a lot of fun, so I'm glad to get involved!

I still wanted to post my creation here, so here's the link to my card on Flickr...

Mama Elephant Flickr Challenge entry - Make ME Laugh

And here's my card...

So the theme set was...'Make ME laugh' and this is what I came up with. We all know the new 'Photo bomb' set by Mama Elephant is unreal, amazing, and cute as a button...but I thought it would be fun to create my own take on it, with a whole bunch of little critters from various ME sets...and then to make it more 'LOL' than 'Awwww'...I thought it would be funny to take one of the little cuties from 'Up and away', and have him being swept, well, 'Up and Away', by one the balloons from the background.  My scene took a whole lot of masking (see photo below) which was time consuming, but worth it.  I coloured my image using Promarkers and used Lawn Fawn's 'Say Cheese' die to turn it into a photo.  I coloured my Mama Elephant 'Happy' die, also with Promarkers, creating an Ombre effect to match my sky, and stamped out 'together' from ME's 'Happy Everything', on vellum in Black Sparkle, to finish off my sentiment.  I wanted my little photograph to take up your full attention, so kept the rest of the card white and simple.  I dry embossed a piece of white cardstock to mount everything on to, using a cloud skyline folder, added a little twine and some ribbon flags behind my picture, and there you have it.  I'm really happy with how this card came out, and hope yo made you giggle :)

  1. I love the photo bomb set, but this is an inspired take on it. Looks great and must have taken ages. Fantastic result. Xx
