The same goes for stamp sets. At the moment I have several that I absolutely adore. Yes, they are my temporary favourites but that's because they're new. When I first saw them in the new catalogue I knew I would include them in my first order. I've used all three and am still totally in love. Today I'm going to use one of them, the From Land to Sea stamp set. The other two will be featured among my projects in tomorrow's Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop. Oh, and they're amazing!
I began today's project with a piece of Shimmery White specialty cardstock and some inks drawn over a plastic window sheet and sprayed with Isopropyl Alcohol. Once I had the colours all mixed and "swirly", I put my piece of cardstock into the mixture and spritzed it a bit more with the alcohol. Then I took it out and let it dry. The colours I used were Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Hello Honey. Mixed and swirled together, they remind me of an underwater scene, which is good because that's what I was aiming for.
I took another piece of Shimmery White paper and stamped the sea turtle image onto it using Memento ink. Once my coloured piece was totally dry, I used Versamark and white embossing powder to heat emboss two Jellyfish images, leaving lots of room in between for the turtle. Once I had coloured the turtle, I fussy-cut the image. Those who know me are aware of my addiction to fussy-cutting.
For my base, I used the new heavy Whisper White, then a layer of Hello Honey and then a layer of Bermuda Bay. My turtle is raised up on Dimensionals to add 2-D effect. My sentiment is stamped in Memento black ink and is from Guy Greetings.
I hope you'll check out the new Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.
