Summer Water Fun!

Good morning!

Judging from the reactions of everyone to the new Eclectic Summer StampTV kit - you all are loving it as much as I am! Here's another couple of cards that I made for the Release party last week - the first one is made with the new Free with Three Lazy Days of Summer stamp set and the next one is with the Eclectic Summer kit.

I used Basic Grey's LimeRickey papers along with Gina's new In the Navy cardstock. The image was stamped on Gina's Pure Luxury cardstock in Memento black ink and colored with a combination of Copics and then Sakura Glitter pens. After I assembled the card all together, I applied a thick layer of Crystal Lacquer to the entire image and set aside to dry overnight.

Here's a close up so you can see the shine...


Next, I pulled out an old favorite technique called Polished Stone and that adorable fish from the Eclectic Summer kit...

Isn't that fun? And, talk about a quick card! No coloring at all on this card! I used Ranger's Alcohol inks for the polished stone - I'm sorry I don't remember which ones right off the top of my head right now. After the polished stone dried on the glossy cardstock, I stamped the fish in Black Stazon.

To mimic the water's waves, I embossed the vellum with the Cuttlebug swirl folder and applied adhesive to the center of the mat so that the main image would hide the glue. I used Silver cording to wrap around the image and tied the bow behind it so I wouldn't cover up any of those fun fish! The sentiment is also from the Eclectic Summer kit... I adore all the sayings in this set!!

Here's a close up of the fish so you can see the polished stone a little better...

Thanks for stopping by today - have a great day!
