Throwback Thursday #1

Every Thursday I am hoping to be using an older stamp or supply, see if I can breathe some new life into it. This Stampin' Up! background stamp, Riot Of Petals is from 2008. I had such an addiction to the big background stamps, it was always the first place I would look whenever I got the new catalog.
This card uses Strathmore watercolor paper cold press, Kuretake gem colors paints, Tombow brush markers, Crumb Cake ink blended on with brush and then lifted some of the color off with a wet paintbrush, sepia Pitt pens for dots, Ink on 3 liquid glitter for open spaces, and a sentiment from Lawn Fawn Winter Skies embossed in white on Basic Black.

More Whale Done

Super cute Whale Of A Time designer paper brings these cards together so easily. The sequins are another must have! All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Whale Done, Stampin' Up!

Whale Done to Stampin' Up! for their new product suites and bundles. Especially this one! I love anything beachy, underwater, nautical, or anything that reminds me of Hawaii.  This designer paper pack may be my favorite yet. I fussy cut the turtles and popped them up on foam dimensionals, added the Whale of a Time sequins and used the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the sentiment. Calypso Coral card base.
All products are Stampin' Up! only for this anything goes challenge.

Mermaid Meeting

For the Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp. I used the Lawn Fawn set and dies Mermaid For You. Had lots of fun creating the underwater scene with watercolor and glossy paper, brusho crystals, alcohol inks, sequins, and Scattered stencil  and a Hero Arts water drops stencil with ice blue Nuvo paste.

Christmas In July

Stars are the inspiration for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge. I used their set Carol Singers, colored in Copic markers and Prismacolor pencil details. The yellow and blue shading was done with Speckled Egg distress oxide ink and Pearl pastels in yellow and light turquoise. Added some star sequins.
