Online Card Classes Background Check Day 1

Well this wasn't exactly an ink smooshing technique but I did smoosh paint around on a Gelli Plate! It was so much fun! I used Paula Philips JournalArtista's Crusty Bits technique on her You Tube channel found here.

I used Dylusions Bubblegum Pink paint, Dina Wakely Gilt and Golden Fluid Acrylic Titan Buff to achieve this look. The butterfly was die cut using Memory Box Astrid and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Painted Words.  I highly recommend going over to JournalArtista's YouTube channel and giving this technique a try!!!

Simon Says Stamp Latest Release: Splash of Color!!!

For this release Simon sent me a stamp set with matching dies and a new teal blue ink called High Dive! It is gorgeous!!!! I have made four cards with this set and will share two here today. When I saw the stamps and dies, I saw Laura Bassen's plaid cards in my mind! For the first card, stamped my own pattern in High Dive, Audrey Blue and Sea Glass using the flip flops, sunshine, beach and dreams stamps. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh!

 For the second card, I used the Relax die from the last release The Color of Fun which I die cut from paper I colored with High Dive. I die cut the Flip Flops die from a scrap of yellow card stock! Enamel dots are from Doodlebug!
