I stamped an azure Hero Arts card with their Lines Background cling stamp using Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink. I cut the DAD on the Silhouette and stamped the letters with the same background. I used Tumbled Glass ink, very lightly. Using my MISTI, I stamped the 84 from a Hero Arts alphabet clear set (CL687 Days and Month) with Mermaid Lagoon. Then I positioned the star (from Hero Arts CL582 Year Round Sentiments) over the numbers, picked it up with the MISTI, inked it with Tumbled Glass and stamped over the numbers. Trimmed the star and popped it and the DAD with foam tape. The happy was die cut with Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut. I used a Lawn Fawn soft print that I thought looked too light so I colored over it with a Tumbled Glass marker and painted it with Wink of Stella. Added a bit of May Arts' ribbon - done.
I had fun with this card for my sister-in-law Donna who loves turtles and hits the big 50 this year:
The 50, turtle and seaweed were all cut on the Silhouette. I doodled the texture on the turtle using a Distress Marker. I stamped the 50 with Hero Arts' Forest Floor Bold Prints cling stamp for a bit of texture. I stamped Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow upside down to look like bubbles floating up. I tried a piece of blue for the layering but I ended up liking the green so I guess it's a green sea :)
Thanks for stopping!
