Mama Elephant – May Stampede

May 15, 2014


Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!  Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store:


I did some very simple watercolouring for my background to ground the sentiment from Splendid.  I love how bold the sentiment stands out against those colours!
