Hi there everyone, and welcome to the blog hop! Sorry I've been AWOL on my blog this past week, it's been a super busy summer so far!
I am so excited about the stamp set for this hop, it is one I had never before inked up. Hey, what's up with that? It's such a great set and I look forward to getting lots of inspiration myself from our fabulous group of stampers.
Before making my card, I considered style options - clean and simple, one layer, or collage? Lots of layers? I toyed with technique options like a watercolored background, embossing or using the faux tearing sponging tehnique.
In the end, I chose simply sponging a background on a die cut panel.
Yes. Coastal. Cabana. again. It's my go-to color for summer! I die cut Whisper White card stock using the Deco Label Framelits, and sponged a soft layer of Coastal Cabana ink. Stamping the images on top with Meadow Moss, Pear Pizzazz and Strawberry Slush ink came next.
Next on the hop is Tanya Boser, the leader of our crew and a creative genius! I can't wait to see her projects.
Find delight in your craft.
Make something beautiful!
