I am so EXCITED to be a guest designer for Your Next Stamps for the month of September! I will be getting to share with you my projects for the challenges, new releases (Woohoo!), and just plain fun creations!
One of my favorite stamp sets from YNS is the Keepin’ It Reel and I chose to use this for my intro card and let you get to know a little about my style. I love, did I say I LOVE, to use stitched dies, oxide inks, and copic markers on my cards. I also like to have white space around my cards and use geometric shapes to showcase the stamps.
For this card, I created the background with oxide inks on watercolor paper, then spritzed with water and dabbed off with a paper towel. I then die cut the frame and added some inked die cut grass.
I colored all the images from Keepin’ It Reel with copic markers and cut out. I then heat embossed the sentiment in black and pop dotted all the stitched pieces. I glued the fisherman and purple fish down and pop dotted the rest. I added some clear drops for the fishes bubbles for a little embellishment.
Inside, I inked a stitched die cut rectangle and heat embossed with black. I stamped the ink splatters with the Mini Ink Splatter stamp set using oxide inks and added one colored shark for good measure!
I hope to see you this month at Your Next Stamp Blog and here as I share my creations with you!
Thanks so much!
