Sea Creatures

For today's Mojo Monday sketch I went with Stampin' Up!'s Perfectly Artistic designer paper, Hero Arts stamp set with sequins and a little sand dollar that I made with some Sculpey clay and a mold to embellish. I really like this paper, it reminds me of water or the shaving cream technique that was popular a while back- same kind of effect.

Go With The Flow


Experimenting with a watercolor wash, used cobalt and cerulean blues with a bit of sap green for water, orange and burnt sienna for seahorse on watercolor paper. Other supplies are Sizzix Sand & Sea die with new Hero Arts sea collection from the kit of the month for July. Love this, they really put together the perfect summer selection.

First go at Watercolors

Took my first watercolor class last night and this was the first project- a shell inside and out, using only two colors which were Burnt Sienna and Payne's Gray. I am really looking forward to incorporating some watercoloring technique on my cards. I think like any thing else it just takes practice, practice, practice.

Splatter Rainbow Hello


Since I already had the Stampin' Up! So Sweet Of You set sitting out, I thought I'd give it another use. Not sure what the name of the splatter wheel is, the tag was missing. Rolled it in the colors of the rainbow, embossed Hello There in black, added a die cut butterfly.  Easy as can be and flat for mailing.

Chalkboard Hello

I purchased this Stampin' Up! chalkboard paper about a year ago and am finally getting around to playing around with it. Stamp sets used were Flower Patch and So Sweet Of You (retired hostess) with ColorBox pigment inks. Added flower center accents with white gel pen.

Bronc Buster


Working on some masculine cards, I never seem to have enough of those. Bronc Buster is from 2007, paired up with some retired designer papers.

Flamingo


Flamingoes seem to be all the thing lately. This one is from Hero Arts and it has a matching die cut frame. I mixed it with Stampin' Up!'s Tropical Party in Pink Passion, Curry, Olive, and Tangerine.
