2012 Artisan Award Blog Hop - Project 3

Hooray for Day 3!! Even though I had seen all of the projects my friends are posting while I was at Convention, it has been SOOOO much fun to see them more up close and personal (and I love learning tips/tricks and hearing about the creative process behind some of them!). If you are following this hop through, you just came from the ever-so-talented Sarah Sagert. Super creative, that girl!!

Here is card #3 from me ... I was trying to step away from the flowers, which is ALWAYS a challenge for me. I probably most definitely own more flower stamps than anything else! I created the waves for the "water" by using the "negative" from some paper I cut out with the Tasteful Trim die ("negative" meaning the leftover parts after cutting it out). I stamped the duckie image with Whisper White on vellum and then embossed it with Whisper White embossing powder. Then, I colored the image on the back of the vellum ...

Stamps: Easy Events
Paper: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Big Top Birthday, Vellum
Ink: Whisper White, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Corner Rounder Punch, Whisper White Embossing Powder, Tasteful Trim Bigz Die, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Clips Assortment, Flower Brad (Brights)
