thank you tag

Just in the nick of time, I managed to complete July's 12 tags of 2016.

I went a little cuter than normal this time.
 I used this cute elephant stamp from Unity.
Stamped and watercolored him.

Then layered the word and letter dies.
Spritzes of black marker, washi, brads, and stitching finish it up.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.

I've got my last project for Summer of Creative Chemistry. 
This is the Week 8 challenge to use embossing powder and distress ink.

Spray ink and stencil for the background. Then a stencil used to emboss on white core paper and distressed.

I chose the airplane stamp for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge "Things with Wings".

The sentiment is heat embossed with a rust effect.

Fun card to make.

Thanks for stopping by!

nautical card

Today's card is for Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge which is "Nautical/By the Sea".

I've been working through the Summer of Creative Chemistry class at Online Card Classes. This week's challenge was to make a project using alcohol inks. I used aqua, storm, and gold alcohol inks to make the background before stamping this shell. Here's a look at the gold shimmer:

So fun. 

I also used some texture paste, gold thread and beads to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
