Hi everyone! This month marks my one year blog anniversary. I’ve learned a lot in this first year and am continuing to learn more. I thought I’ve heard of all the stamp companies out there, but I’m still discovering new ones! I’ve met quite a few crafty friends (online of course) and love being part of this friendly, supportive and talented crafting community. I am just having so much fun crafting..
So to celebrate, I have a card and a giveaway! I was planning to do this giveaway at the beginning of the month after updating the look of my blog, but I was at a loss at what to do until Loll stepped in. Not only is Loll a talented crafter, but she is so kind to help me out. Thank you so much Loll. And now here’s my card.
The images were stamped with Intense Black ink on scraps of X-press It paper, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the matching dies.
Distress inks were blended on hot press watercolor paper to create the sky and water. A Wave stencil and border die were used to create the waves in the water. Both were spritz with water and dabbed with a paper towel for some texture.
The sentiment was black heat embossed. To finish, clear shimmer was added to the mermaid’s tail and top and Glossy Accents was added to the turtle shell and dolphin.
I am linking up to the following challenges:
SSS Wednesday – Anything Goes
Crafts Friends – #56 Anything Goes
Pixie’s Snippets Playground – Week 277 and 278 (paper)
