We are welcoming the lovely Aida Haron into the Designer Spotlight this month, if you haven't visited her blog you are in for a real treat! :-)
I made a couple of cards for this challenge
First up is a 4th of July card using an Indogoblu Tasty Textures Background Stamp
One of these days I will go to the US during the 4th of July celebrations, I am sure the atmosphere during the parades would be amazing!
I made this card to wish all of my friends on the other side of the pond a
Very Happy 4th of July!
I used some Corrugated Card for the base and then splattered some Watercolor Paper with London Blue and White Linen Inks. I stamped the stripes with Hero Arts Red Royal ink and then coloured the awesome new Simon Says Stamp Stacked Stars Die Cut with Faded Jeans Paint and London Blue ink before sprinkling with Blue Glitter. I die cut a Star using Burlap and then aded a few splurges of Gesso before adhering the Small Talk Stickers to finish
Next up is a card I made using a super cute Indigoblu Dukes Gang Cling Stamp Set!! SO CUTE!!
I used the same Tasty Textures Stamp to add a few pebbles to the ground using Pumice Stone Distress Ink, I then used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky and used Archival Sky Blue to stamp some texture over the top using another of the stamps in the
Tasty Textures set. I then added more interest using a Bubble Stencil and White Embossing Paste.
I paper pieced the pupsters using papers from a Tim Holtz Dapper Paper Pack and added a 'trellis' using a gorgeous new Carabelle Studio Textures Die and added some Wildflowers to complete the scene.
I love them so much I had to include them all so popped the rest of them on the inside, well, we needed the whole gang eh!! ;-)
