Sea Shaker Card

Hi! I am glad you stopped by today. The challenge theme at Just For Fun is Hot Hot Hot. A great way to get cool from the August heat is to hit the water. I made an underwater scene on my card using the Just For Fun medium Stamptangle Seahorse and two seashells from the Beach Unmounted Sheet.

This is also a shaker card. I splattered Oxide inks on white card stock, placed some aqua sequins on the card stock, added a piece of acetate on top and then adhered the aqua Sewn Frame, by Gina Marie, to the acetate window. 

The seahorse was stamped onto an orange inked background and fussy cut. I stamped the seashells on cream card stock and colored some ares with a tan Zig water marker. These were also fussy cut. 

I stamped the saying on kraft paper and made a banner.

I hope you are staying cool this August. I know I am enjoying my air conditioning! We were without air conditioning for 5 weeks in May and June! And then again for a few days when the roofers came and broke our new ac unit we had for only 2 weeks!!! 

Please join in the challenge at Just For Fun. We would love to see all you wonderful creations and you might even win a gift certificate to the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

Bits and Bobs #15

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I am showing another bits and bobs card today. I found a neat product in my stash that I bought years ago! I don't know where I bought this, but it had never been opened. This black paper is called Scratch Art. I looked online to see if this still exists and boy do they have a lot of beautiful kits of this product!

Basically you lay a stencil over the black paper and scratch off the areas inside the stencil and beautiful colors appear! I used a butterfly Kite stencil for this card.

After I scratched the butterfly I found some old Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers I had cut and colored many years ago and added them below the butterfly. I found a happy birthday die from North Coast Creations, cut it from aqua card stock to adhere to my card. 

I am excited that I have found another neat way to use my stencils.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
