Hey y'all, how's it going today? I'm feeling a little off my stamping game, to be honest. But I did get a card made for today.
I'm a little disappointed that the top turtle ended up being a little smeary. I stamped the turtles with Versamark and Cucumber Crush, and I really didn't expect that to work with stamping off but that turtle looks pretty good. They're embossed with clear EP, then I spritzed the whole thing with water and haphazardly watercolored some Tempting Turquoise for the background and dried it with the heat tool. So why an undersea card today? Because of the Cupcake Inspirations challenge, of course:
And I made it a get well card for the Global Design Project challenge:
Now all I have to do is write "just keep swimming" on the inside when I need to send it to someone :) I combined those two challenges with the Mojo Monday sketch:
The sea turtles were actually my second try on the background panel, here was the first one:
I liked how the "sea" turned out better on this one (except the scribble on the top above the turtle because the paper wasn't wet enough yet) but I thought that having all three of the sea creatures on there just made it too busy. So I went with my favorite turtle instead :)
In other news, watermelon-flavored Greek yogurt is just weird and should not be a thing. Glad I only got one container of that...
Cheers, y'all! And just keep swimming.
