When my son was in Boy Scouts, his troop did a family river canoe trip each year and it was a blast! Even when the boys dumped me out into the river. My son thought it would be a hoot to play at tipping my canoe and another boy carried it out. I was badly bruised where the canoe hit my leg. My revenge was to "Mom him" the rest of the trip. I decided that he must need extra attention, so I threatened to give him tons of hugs. Nothing is worse for a teen age boy, who wants to be cool in front of the the other boys, than to be hugged by a Mom in public. He didn't come near me the rest of the trip. LOL
For my card, I used some new toys that I had not played with before. My yellow designer paper is Afternoon Muse by Glitz. I sprayed Turquise Perfect Pearls Mist on my mat, then dipped a dotted stamp by Stampers Anonymous in it and stamped the yellow designer paper. I really like how it came out.
But I wasn't done yet. I then sprayed Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mist and using the same stamp, stamped my turquoise card stock with it. If you look carefully, you can see the sheen on the paper. All papers were inked with blue Jean distress ink.
My image is Penelope by Michelle Perkett. Michelle makes the most lovely images. You can check out her digi images here and if you like rubber, you can now get some of her amazing images in rubber at Sparkle n Sprinkles here.
Penelope is a freebie that Michelle gave out eons ago, but she has a different freebie available every Tuesday here at her blog.
Michelle is our sponsor for this challenge at Creative Card Crew. One lucky winner will win a $10 gift voucher to her Etsy shop.
Our challenge is On the Beach/Under the Sea. I perfect challenge for Michelle Perkett's gorgeous mermaids.
My swirls are a Quik Cuts die.
I did the same with the smaller flower, but reversed the color. The center is a blue Dew Drop.
My sentiment is Hot Off the Press.
Here is a close-up of the dotts. Aren't they pretty?
