VIDEO | Eclipse Sentiment + More Favourite Copic Colour Combos

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the eclipse technique. I had a few comments following this card that I made to share how I created it. Instead of doing a flower, I thought I would do something different and make a cloud background with some adorable elephants.

To start off my card, I stamped two of the elephants from the Mama Elephant Fly With Me Stamp Set on to a panel of white cardstock, using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I created masks for these with masking paper and added them on top of the images. I then created my cloud background.

I took the MFT Cloud Stencil and placed this on top of my panel, securing down with Post It Tape. Using a blending brush, I blended Distress Ink on the panel, moving the stencil down as I went. I used Mermaid Lagoon at the top, followed by Blueprint Sketch in the middle and Chipped Sapphire at the bottom.

The masks were removed from the elephants and they were coloured using Copic Markers. I used my favourite warm grey colour combination on the elephants. I then used my favourite purple and pink combos on the balloons. The colours that I used are listed below the supplies section.

I took the Mama Elephant Big Happy Birthday Die and placed this over my panel. I then ran it through my die cutting machine, making sure to keep all of the pieces intact. I cut a further three layers of the die (the positive piece) from white cardstock. I adhered the stamped panel on to an A2 white card base with tape runner and then added one of the white happy birthday dies in the gap. The inside pieces of the letters were then added in. I  stacked up the white die cuts and then finally added the image piece on top to complete the design.

Here is the video showing how I made the card:

I really like creating eclipse cards, non-cardmakers always wonder how you created them! I usually do this technique with just backgrounds or florals but I think it did work quite well with the elephants on this card too. Thank you so much for visiting me today. I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day!
