Hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Creative Crew July Blog Hop. This month the theme is “Anything Goes”. You are currently visiting me Gina Connor – Emerald kreations from Northern Ireland .So “Anything Goes ” ! which literally means we can show case whatever we want to . Hurrah !! So I’m going to show you a card that I made for a friend’s birthday this week. I specifically bought this stamp set Bubbles and Bubbly as I have a few friends that I think I could use this stamp set for.
I had great fun making it, using different mediums. I stamped using Memento Ink and coloured in with Blend pens and Watercolour pencils. The bubbles are actually coloured in using a Wink of Stella pen, they are shining but the camera didn’t quite pick it up in the evening light.
I used the Bermuda Bay watercolour pencil to colour in the towel. I coloured in doing overlapping circles and I was delighted that it made the towel look soft and fluffy!
Easel cards are so easy to make and I will be making a video very shortly showing you how to make one. The colours that I used are Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White. The Ivory Blend pen is the perfect skin tone colour.
Lastly to make the sentiment stand up, I stamped on a piece of whisper white card and used a !/2 inch circle punch to take the corners off. I then layered this on a slightly bigger piece of Pool Party card and repeated this. I added dimensionals to the layering to allow it to stand up and prop the card open.
