*This is my second post for today....Please scroll down for the current sketch challenge at DRS Designs!*
I'm so happy you stopped back to visit me today. We are in full swing with sneak peeks for the Grand Opening of Amber Ink on Tuesday July 20th. This is the paper I previewed yesterday. It's the Seahorse Paisley, which is just so vibrant and fun; fabulous for this time of year when the weather is warm and the sunshine is bright.
I used it to make this card which incorporates images from the brand new stamp set "Can I Keep Him?" This new underwater themed set is full of darling little sea creatures, and I was excited that they fit the current Mojo Monday sketch challenge.
Here is a close up of the squares up on their pop dots. The sea animals are colored with Copic markers and I tried to capture the glossy effects I added to the pearl for a little shine.
One of my favorite images is this little puffy fish...So cute, right?
This next paper sample is a bright pink with seaweed, paisley and goldfish on it....
And I used it on my next card. It uses the adorable Mermaid image from the same set named "Can I Keep Him?"
I couldn't resist using that cute little fish again, only this time he's (Yes, it's a he...He is blue after all) up on a pop dot and more like an embellishment.
I just envision crafters using these papers and stamps for little girls birthday parties, pool party invites and vacation journals....the possibilities are endless!
There is also a companion set of digi images coming out, all in an underwater theme. It's just chock full of different types of coral, seaweed and sea urchin.
Goodness, it really is a thrill to be a tiny part of this venture and I'm so happy you're coming along for the ride too! I can't wait for you to see everything on July 20th, but until then, stop by the Design Team blogs on my side bar. They may be showing you something Amber Ink-a-licious of their own today.
See you tomorrow!
