three amigos

When I saw the three amigos stamp set by Mama Elephant I loved it. Make the Day Special store sold out of stock pretty quickly but I selected the notify me when new stock comes in option and when I got the email to say there was more in store I ordered straight away. I absolutely adore the racoon image and after watching some of Laura Bassen's copic colouring bought some copics and followed her tips. (I'd love her to add a video tutorial of her colouring the three amigos as I'm not entirely sure how she did the cat and fox).

You could say I was eager to put my new stamps to use and the April theme challenge for the Make The Day Special Blog is tic-tac-toe. I selected masculine-dry embossing-stripes. The racoon with his mask and stripes fits perfectly, the cardstock is dry embossed and one of these is for a boy while the other celebrates a boy's birth.

The sentiment is from an old MFT set Notched Tags.
