This card used not one... not two....but a total of 8 different stamp sets to make. I used the following Mark's Finest Papers Sets:
BE WILD AND FREE FLAMINGOS ON VACATION LOVE LOVE LOVE HEY COWBOY CRACKED HELLO FLAPS MY WATTLES CHRISTMAS MUSIC WELCOME POPPIES
I took all the long strips from these sets and layered them on my acrylic block. Since cracked hello is not a strip I had it on one end. I used a page from my encyclopedia. I then used versamark ink to heat emboss with white ep. Then using water color resist, I painted the paper with a warm color pallet. I stamped the silhouette of the elephant and giraffe with black stazon. I water colored behind them. I added twine and decorated beads. I know the Have a Happy Day panel deviates from the sketch, sorry Korin, but I tried stamping the sentiment onto the page and it just didn't show up well with the words behind it. So had to add that panel. So challenge police I plead for mercy.

Holy smokes, MariLynn! This is a true work of art. I think that must be a record....8 sets! There should be a prize. I love the colors and the text and the twine and the beads and the and the and the....fabulous.
