A Swap within our Group

This is my swap card for our very small group. We had to come up with something using a stamp set from the Summer Mini. I have to thank Splitcoasterstampers for my inspiration - Gretchen Barron. The link below. This is a very bright card, but I feel it is a happy and feel good card.


Stamp: Razzle Dazzle 117709 - 33.95
Paper: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Yo Yo Yellow, Whisper White and Glossy White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Re-inkers Tempting turquoise, Only Orange, Real Red, Yo Yo Yellow
Accessories: Border Eyelet Punch, Real Red Polk-Dot Ribbon, Dimensionals, Aqua Painter, White E/B powder, Buddy, Heat Tool, Cutter, Stampin' Write Markers.

To do the centre piece, I used glossy white paper. Emboss your image onto the glossy paper with either white embossing pwder or clear embossing powder, what ever you prefer. When dry, Spray it with a fine mist of water and then use your aqua painter and drop/paint with your re-inkers and let the ink run. Dab off excess water/ink with a paper towel. Blend colours to how you would like them. When dry polish with a tissue.

Background on whisper white paper, I used the stampin' Write marker and coloured straight onto the rubber stamp, starting with the lightess colour marker first, going through to the darkest. I had to repeat this 3 times, keeping the colours in order. Don't forget to huff on your inked stamp before you stamp, this moistens the ink so you don't have to hurry.

The rest is self explanatory.
All the links are below for you to look at.

Happy Stampin',

Cheryl
