My brother-in-law loves to fish. Recently a sweet friend gave me the Penny Black fish dies, so had to use one for his BD card.
Luckily, one of the Pinterest emails had a Ranger video showing how to paint with Liquid Pearls. I have 6 bottles because I love the beautiful, shimmery colors. However, I've never been successful using them to make pearls. Now they'll be more than decorations for my craft table!
I was playing around with Distress Ink techniques using several shades of blue. Didn't really turn out, but decided it'd work for the sea by cutting it apart with Spellbinder edge dies I won at The Playground. The sentiment is a very old PB stamp I always reach for--just love that font which I think works for guys or gals. I didn't like how stark the clear dots looked, so used soft green sequins for the bubbles. Really had fun making this card--a bit different. I'm entering The Playground, SSS Monday, Country View Challenges, DRU, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.
Hubby's washing off the deck where we'll be sitting tomorrow morning watching the total eclipse. How lucky to be in the path of totality & not even have to leave home! Hoping the clouds & smoke stay away! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
