|Spots and stripes themed card|
To make this card I used the following products: Acid Drops & Whatnots "Birthday Splash" stamp set free with Papercraft Essentials Issue 95. Papermania Capsule Collection "Spots & Stripes>Brights" 6" x 6". Blue linen card Crafter's Companion Clear Sparkle pen. Glossy Accents (for the water - it's hard to see in photos). Starfish charm, red glitter enamel dots and Bakers Twine. Foam pads and DS tape. Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 5" x 5" white card blank and envelope. Promarkers in Cool Grey 1, Almond, Cool Aqua, Tea Green, Indigo Blue and Midnight Blue.
I didn't have an exact match for the dark blue stripes in the paper so I combined my two darkest blues to colour in the bathing suit of this quirky character.It's hard to tell in the photos but the card is very sparkly in real life and I even added touches of it to the Bakers Twine.
I hope you like my latest card, it's very simple but a lot of fun to make and it was good to challenge myself to use a stamp set that's been languishing in my stash for a couple of years. I do hope you click on the link and check out the Passion for Promarkers blog, even if you don't join in with the challenge it's a great place for inspiration and to check out what other crafters are making.
I hope you all have a brilliant weekend and as always if you have any questions or comments then please leave them in the usual places. Until next time - keep crafting!
Love and crafty hugs,
