Mama Elephant~Sketchy Letters

Hi everyone! Today I’m over on the Mama Elephant blog sharing a couple of fun projects using the new Sketchy Letters stamp set.Mama Elephant~Sketchy LettersHave you seen those cute little quotes and prints that are all over Pinterest with the funny and inspirational quotes? I just love them and thought I’d use the Sketchy Letters to create some of my own.
Mama Elephant~Sketchy LettersFirst I went in search of some quotes that I liked. These particular ones really made me laugh. The one on the right was just stamped and colored with Copics. Don’t look at my messy kitchen! I also used circle images from the Four Seasons and Pandamonium stamp sets as well as several of the Mama Elephant pigment inks.
Mama Elephant~Sketchy LettersDoes a dance party ever break out in your kitchen? It does mine. I suppose it’s better to dance than to fight, right? Here’s a little video to show you how I made them.So you can see how versatile the new Sketchy Letters stamp set is. Maybe you’d like to find a funny or inspirational quote to make for yourself, too! Thanks so much for looking!
