It has been hot, hot, hot here in Central Alabama. I would love to be at the lake, a swimming pool, or some type of water. I had to settle for making some cards with water scenes instead. My first card was made by inking up a panel in Pacific Point and then stamping Vicki's Versatile Background in the same color. Next, I stamped on two of the fish from 4 in 1 Ocean Designs and then coloring them in with a Sharpie pen. I added on some eyes with white paint and then stamped the Eyes for You Greeting. On the back panel, I stamped the same fish in Sahara Sand.
My next card was made this weekend and was inspired by THIS lovely picture at Ballard Designs which was the inspiration site at Splitcoaststampers.com. After painting up the scene in watercolors (really just a bunch of upward flecks in different colors of green and brown with a touch of blue and white), I stamped the Dreams Inspire Future Greeting. I stamped the greeting one more time and cut out and sponged the "will inspire" banner. I popped up the banner and then sponged around the whole card panel in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Hope your week is going well! Hugz -
