Shark Shaker

Hello! I've got a new shaker card to share with you today and it features the "Storm Cloud" Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground.
I think the Caffeinated Shark from The Rabbit Hole Designs is just hilarious, and I knew that having a cloudy sky would just add to the bad morning this guy is clearly having. I had the Small Stitched Cloud die from Rubbernecker Stamps that I used to cut out my shaker panels. Then I used the Go with the Flow stencil from Taylored Expressions for my water. I inked it with Salty Ocean and Broken China Distress Oxides. I then covered most of the stenciling with some vellum, to help it appear that the shark was actually in the water.
Awww, look at him.....he's so sad. I hope he's got coffee in the pot! I colored the shark with Zig Clean Color Markers.
You can see the Storm Cloud Sparkle Blend here. It's got deep blues, grays, dusty purples, silver, and opalescent whites. It's really lovely. I happen to love the dusty tones it has...it's very different from what you would normally see in a sequin mix. I stamped the sentiment with Twilight colored ink from the VersaFine Clair line. I love the deep rich blue that it is. I made my card base out of gray cardstock and inked the bottom edge with more Salty Ocean Distress Oxide. 
I think this came out super cute, and I loved combining different products from a variety of companies. The Storm Cloud Sparkle Blend started it all, though. You've got to grab one for yourself! Head on over to White Rose Crafts LLC to see all of the available Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. They are the exclusive retailer. You can get 15% off of your purchase with my code, "Alison 15." Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
