Group Photo

When I saw this stamp set during preview week over at Mama Elephant I knew that I had to have it.  This group of kids is just too cute and a good group to color up, although time consuming. 

As I said earlier, Mama Elephant’s Photo Bomb was used on this card and colored up with Copic markers.  Once I finished coloring faces I got a little lazy and decided to paper piece the two dresses worn with some Snap Vibe paper.  I used a white sharpie pen to color in the areas that could be taken for lace around their necklines and the sleeves on the one in the lower left corner and put some Christmas red stickles to the heart on her dress as well.  One of my kiddos got a little lost in the image, but he made it through.  I cut two Polaroid frames out of neutral colors and put my focal image into them and placed it on the red panel.  I cut the letters out of scraps of Recollections paper that I had in my stash and fixed them to my project using multi-matte medium.  I put a metallic enamel dot to represent a magnet at the top of my Polaroid.

Supplies used:
Paper: American Crafts Red for main panel, Recollections various colors, Neenah #110 Solar White for card base, Hammermill #100 for picture panel, Snap Color Vibe 6 x 6 paper pack;

Stamps and Dies: MaMa Elephant Photo Bomb, Lawn Fawn Say Cheese Die, Lawn Fawn Finley’s ABC’s, MFT Blueprint 18 for red panel;
