Take the Scenic Route

I used a die (I  do not remember which company manufactures it, sorry) and used the smallest blending brushes  to add colors to the white card stock i die cut.  I used the Primitive Batik Stencil from A Colorful Life Stencils   for water and a homemade cloud stencil for the sky.   The sentiment is Scenic Route which was heat embossed on vellum.    It is adhered to the scene with one of my Xyron  machine.  

Have a wonderful day, and get inky.

#Summer Challenge - Old Friends



I used two Technique Junkies stamps to create my card:
  • Old Friends -  I colored the stamped image with my Copic markers.    The I sort of fussy cut around the sentiment, the ladies, and the boat.  I used only the boat for the envelope. I colored the boat with dye based markers direct to rubber.
  • Clouds - I stamped the image with Memento Black Tuxedo ink.  Then I sprayed it with Ocean Depth Shimmering Bliss spray. 
I layered the friends on the boat scene over the clouds image, trimmed the needed extra, and added other layers. 

This would make a wonderful birthday card!

#Summer Challenge - Colorful Seahorses



All of the  stamps on this card and envelope are from the set Seahorses.   This was a very simple card and an experiment.   I used three shades of Distress Stains and sprayed  those shades on a non porous surface.  Then I stamped the stamp into that ink -- stamping the ink into white card stock.   It was stamped randomly and then again on the envelope.   I stamped another seahorse on a scrap of cardstock and trimmed it.  I inked the shell stamp in the pool of blue on a scrap of cardstock.  Then the verse was heat embossed over black Versafine ink.
