I  started by making a circle using Distress Oxides. A circle die cut mask was then used to cover the Oxide circle.
The sky BG was made next using the Oxides and water. After the BG was completely dried I removed the mask.
The silhouette image of the Elephant Scene and sentiment was stamped and then heat embossed onto the oxide BG.

  5. I love the tree on that stamp and your blended background. The elephants all holding tails, along with the sentiment stamp you've used, let's me think this would be a wonderful baby card. So pretty. Can't wait to see what you do on Day 2!
