Message in a Bottle…
The Pal’s blog hop was Wednesday! This day is always fun and full of inspiration! If you missed the hop. Check it out here!!!
And then yesterday I was Guest Designer on Brian’s blog at Stamp with Brian. I was super honored to share a cool technique with his readers.
I really wanted to use the circles for a water scene. The obvious choice was, Magical Mermaid. But, I wanted to try something different! Therefor I went with Message in a Bottle.
This is one of the most adorable stamp sets ever!!! I have been in love with it ever sence my friend Shawn made a card with it! He used the octopus and the message “you octopi my thoughts” . How precious and adorable is that. Anyway, I have wanted to use this stamp set ever sence. So, today is the perfect opportunity!!!
- The background is Playful Backgrounds stamped on tissue paper and heat embossed with silver embossing powder
- The colors used for the background are Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Tranquil Tide
- Then I added ink to it using the Faux Batik technique. Instead of discarding the tissue paper. I let it dry and made this background.
- After the tissue is dry, I mixed multipurpose glue a little water. Painted it onto a piece of cardstock. Then added the tissue on top.
- The bottle is stamped in Basic Black., the water in Pool Party, and the whale in Basic Gray
- The sentiment is stamped inside the classic label in the Happy Birthday Georgius stamp set . Then punched with the classic label punch
- It is hard to see in the card, but, I added a little silver thread and some metallic enamel dots
The card base is Daffodil Delight with Basic Gray layered on top!
Here is a close up of the water bubbles and the bottle!
