In need of a guy card? Well, Father's Day and many male Birthdays are coming up in my family over the next couple of months, so I need to get busier than this one card design! :-)
Yes, I'm still crazy about the "By the Tide" stamp set, so I'm still designing cards using it!
This one is much simpler in design......the background was done by masking everything but a strip of the card front and brayering three different colors in varying shades from light to dark. Then keep your masking on and stamp the fish in your darkest color you used in the brayering.
The easiest way I find to color is to stamp the image, dauber on color, highlight with other colors using a blender pen, and then finally cut it out. :-)
Hope you enjoy!!
I don't know about you all, but our weather here has been freakish lately! We'll have an 80 degree day, then snow 2 days later, then 70's to 80's for a week and then in drops down into the 50's again!
Come on now......I'm ready for a REAL, consistent Spring into Summer!
'Just Bloom' is inspired by my desire for warmth and sunshine on a regular basis! No more 30's-40's at night, thank you. :-)
Had fun making this flower with an oldy but goody method and the wonderful "Blossom" punch. LOVE working with Crumb Cake, in case you haven't picked up on that yet. :-)
Hope you enjoy!
You are going to get tired of seeing all these cards using the fun set in "By the Tide".....it's fast becoming my all time favorite set!! LoL.
Had fun using a combination of Calypso Coral, Whisper White and Crumb Cake! Throw in some rhinestones, embossed background and twine and you have a fun card! :-)
Hope it inspires you and warms you up in expectation of Summer!
Wow! Some great colors coming back in the new catalog, and some wonderful colors going out!
I'm excited about many of the them coming back, and like you, sad about others that are leaving. With that said, many colors are already sold out, so order those colors you want to stock up on ASAP before thet are all gone. I would also order coordinating ribbon, markers and ink re-fills!!
Here's the list and I followed it with the actual colors (made on MDS) for better brain processing. :-)
