*********************************************

I have THREE cards to share using basically the same products.  I've used Need a Hand and School of Fish Bold Prints.

My first card uses some of the adorable images from Need a Hand.  The images were Copic colored, die cut, and set aside.  Broken China Distress Ink was blended over the right lower corner of the note card.  The panel was spritzed with water and flicked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  The sentiment (this one cracks me up) was stamped in black ink and my images were added with foam adhesive around the sentiment.  A few water droplets were added as a final touch!

Need a Hand

*********************************************

My second and third cards are very similar.  Both panels were ink blended with Faded Jeans, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, and Salty Ocean Distress Inks.  

The first card is a clean and simple version.  An area was masked off, ink blended, and then the small school of fish image from Need a Hand was stamped repeatedly across the panel.  1/8" black strips were added to the top and bottom to "hide" an oopsie I made while trying to outline this with a black marker!  

Go with the flow


The second card uses the same ink blending colors but the School of Fish Bold Prints was over stamped with black ink.  I used the Misti for this as I had to ink it a few times for the look I wanted.  A simple white sentiment strip was added along with water droplets.

I subscribed to the monthly kits at the beginning of the Pandemic—and have certainly not been disappointed! This one is so cute!

Cindy C. said...

Great projects!!

Queen Mary said...

I always love seeing what people do with the add ons-- especially the background stamps, I think we get so much bang for our bucks there, but you got quite a bit of mileage out of that cute little octopus set too! AND quite a bit of mileage out of some ink blending -- a kind of fun way to spend an afternoon, so I appreciated that too. TFS!
