Sorry about that last post. It's really hard to write posts on my phone and I haven't had much of a chance to get on my computer lately. I went away last weekend to a crop for the whole weekend! So I have lots of stuff to share in the near future.
I am so excited to be guest designing for Great Impressions this month!
I made two cards with these adorable stamps! I definitely could have kept going because I had so much fun! For this first card, I used watercolor pencils to color the image. For the sand, I masked the penguin feet and then blended a couple colors of ink to create variation. Next I used a mask and a slightly darker ink to add the dots, which I then embossed with opalescent clear embossing powder to create a little bit of glimmer, which doesn't show up very well in this photo. Additionally, I added glossy accents to the inner tube, sunglasses and bow, which also doesn't show up well in this photo.
For this card, I wanted to make the image stand out from the rest of the card, so I fussy cut it. I colored this one with watercolor pencils and alcohol ink markers. The double frame really sets off the image.
Today I have a Joy's Life Back to school project to share with you! I thought this would be fun to put in a lunch box filled with treats or fruit snacks or whatever. I used several stamps because I thought my daughter would get a kick out of the puns.
The papers and Washi tape are from Doodlebug. The brads are Eyelet Outlet. The ink is clearsnap. I started with an explosion box that some perfume came in. I recovered it in blue cardstock then added the details.
Supplies: Wooden leaves: Prima, paper: My Mind's Eye and Lily Bee, Sticker stitches: SRM, flair:Studio Calico, Cardstock: Bazzill, Ink: Clearsnap, Transparency: Maya Road, Stamp: Joy's Life
If you didn't start at the beginning, you might want to hop on back there and check out all the inspiration and prizes to be had along the way. If you did start at the beginning, then HOORAY! you've made it to the end! now hop on back over to Joy's Life and tell her what a great time you had!
Last but not least, I have blog candy!! I honestly don't know what it is yet, but I will find something wonderful. So to be entered to win a surprise pack of blog candy, become a follower (or already be one) and leave a comment below. I will pick a winner randomly next week.
Anyway, I resized the image and moved the sentiment a little bit. I printed it out twice and used foam tape for dimension. This gorgeous image is colored with faber castell pastels. The paper is Carta Bella So Noted
