September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we have 25 creative ideas for you using the Feel So Blessed stamp set. You might be arriving here from BRANDI'S BLOG, and you'll find a list of all the participating bloggers here. Let's hop!
I have been working a lot in the Whimsy Fundamentals palette this month, and on my desk I had a 4 x 12 cardstock mask I used to paint the backgrounds on this layout. It wasn't what I originally intended for this card, but sometimes the paper just calls to you! I outlined the watercolored background with journaling pen, and stamped on the THANKS sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black. I stamped the SOAR letters using the biggest verse in the stamp set and carefully trimmed out each letter before coloring them in and coating them with gold shimmer pen. The FOR HELPING ME is hand lettered with that same journaling pen, as were the sparkles and bitty sparkles, giving me a few shades of black and grey bling for this card.
I wanted this little baby elephant to be holding up a feather like Dumbo. The feather was colored with Black watercolor paints and gold shimmer pen. The baby elephant was painted with pink and grey watercolors as well. I did a pale coat with more water, and the dry brushed on a bit more grey for the texture on his skin. I'm linking this card up to the Heart 2 Heart Anything Goes Challenge.
Next up on the hop is MICHELE'S BLOG. Be sure to grab your September SOTM here, or from your consultant before it flies away at the end of this month!
