KISS Technique and Mojo Monday Card Sketch

It's Monday and another wonderful sketch from the Mojo blog! For my card I made a baby card using the KISS technique for the elephant! I have more pictures and details below!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:

I was inspired by the patterns on the elephant in the Tall Tales DSP so I wanted to combine Chocolate Chip and Old Olive on the one image! The Kiss Technique is basically inking one stamp off of another! Here's how I did it:

1) I started by inking the elephant from the Animal Stories stamp set in Old Olive ink and set aside for a moment while I got the next stamp ready.

2) Then I stamped the Polka Dot patterned stamp from the For All You Do stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink

3) Then I stamped the Elephant on the Polka dot stamp (press firmly, straight down)

The end result is an Old Olive Elephant with Chocolate Chip Polka Dots! Then I stamped the Welcome, little one sentiment from the Nursery Necessities stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink below the Elephant!
