Happy Friday, My Hoot-a-riffic Peeps!
Today, my family and I are on the road from Wisconsin to sunny & warm Florida for Spring Break. We are taking the scenic route and enjoying some close-knit time on the way. We will arrive in Florida on Sunday and splitting our time between two resorts. I cannot wait, we have nothing planned but to sit back and relax…which is much needed after an end to a crazy winter and hockey season.
I didn’t have time to make any new creations while prepping for our trip, but I did remember this card that I made back in October 2018 and had yet to share it. This stamp set is from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, which I feel has been lost in the shuffle of the Holiday and Occasions Catalogs. If you haven’t sat down and looked through the annual catalog lately, take a minute and see what you’ve missed. Need a catalog? Request one here.
With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4. Using an Aqua Painter, add a watercolor wash of Calypso Coral Classic Ink. Let dry completely. Use the Stamparatus to position and stamp the sentiment in Cajun Craze Ink. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Color the Koi using the brush ends of a Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker. Huff on the stamp to rejuvenate the ink, and stamp onto Whisper White Cardstock. Snip with a Paper Snips and adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels that have been colored with a Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend.
Watercolor wash is such an easy technique to create a background fit for a masterpiece. Tips: Use an Aqua Painter (water only) to first wet the cardstock. This helps the ink float arounds and not soak immediately into the cardstock. Let dry completely and add more layers of ink to get the ink edge created when the two layers dry.
