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!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
