Mama Elephant-City SidewalksMy project features the adorable new City Sidewalks stamp set & coordinating creative cuts. I’m in love with these cute little buildings and fun sentiments that look like they’re coming out of the chimney!!
Mama Elephant-City SidewalksI used the Hillside Cover die and cut the top part out with a craft knife. I blended distress inks on the background and on the snowy hills. The images were colored with Copics.
