It's Not All Black and White

A Floating Hello

With summer and baby preparation, perhaps you've noticed I haven't been stamping as much as usual. But the mood finally struck yesterday, so I put together this vibrant little card. I used a sketch from PaperCrafts' Go-To Sketches, which also happens to be the sketch for a challenge they're running.

I opted for orange and blue, inspired by the goldfish and water in the stamp. The stamp, from Playful Pals, is colored with Copic markers. I also added just a bit of clear glitter with a Spica pen on the pale blue part of the fish bowl. And it's hard to see, but I added a few white air bubbles coming up from the fish's mouth. I mimicked that with the Pebbles' candy dots in the lower left corner, and repeated the idea again with the white dots across the top. Those were done with a white gel pen and Stampin' Up's paper piercing template. Papers are Pink Paislee, Georgia Pacific white, tangerine tango and pacific blue SU.

FYI- Lizzie Anne is having a Try-a-Mix special this weekend only. So if you've been wanting to see for yourself what a great deal this program is, you can purchase Dream Big (my fave) or It's Good to be Queen for the outstanding club member price of just $25. Check out the details here.
