Black Seashells with Stampendous

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing all sorts of Seaside Summer Fun projects. On Monday, I shared a card with white seashells and Gelatos. Today, I'm sharing a version of that same card. but with black seashells. Goth seashells! 


Supplies:
Stampendous:
CRS5090: Cling Seashells 
DCS5090: Seashells Die Set
SSC1246: Ocean Wisdom
FREG027: Shabby White Embossing Enamel
DP111: Detail Black Embossing Enamel
Acrylic Stamp HandleVM001: VersaMark Watermark Ink Pad
STF082: Onyx Black VersaFine Ink

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Tropical Bay Glimmer
Faber-Castell: Gelatos #770115
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry GluePrism: Black Cardstock



Directions:
1. Start by applying 4 Gelato colors on to your black cardstock (pre-cut to slightly bigger than the size you want for your card), and smear them across the paper, slightly overlapping the colors. Wet a brush slightly, and go over the colors, blending and softening the colors, keeping it very painterly. Let dry, and tear the edges. 

2. Stamp several shells with VersaMark on to black cardstock and heat emboss with Shabby White. Die cut the shells using the coordinating dies. 

3. Arrange the shells temporarily on your dried background to decide where your sentiment will go. Using the Ocean Wisdom set and Onyx Black VersaFine Ink, stamp the sentiment on to the background. Heat emboss with Detail Black embossing enamel. Attach the shells with Zip Dry adhesive.

4. Cut card base out of My Colors cardstock in Tropical Bay Glimmer to 5 1/2" x 8" and fold in half. Glue background to card base using Zip Dry. 

I hope you like my darker version of this card. I'm honestly not sure which I like better. Below are the links to the gals also posting today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
