For this card I was inspired by a youtube video of Laura Bassen. It's a "smooshing" technique.
I really wanted to try it out and I love it! I used distress ink "squeezed lemonade", "cracked pistachio" and "picked raspberry".

I used Lawn Fawn stamp sets: Critters in the Jungle, Plus One, Critters in the Burbs and Science of Love. I stamped the umbrella, mask it and then stamped the elephant and fussy cut them.
And I also use watercolor for the elephant, snail and the umbrella.
