Happy Monday, guys! Yes, we don’t like Mondays, do we?? But I would like to be the one that brightens your Monday with a new card and a video. For those who is suffering from a Monday blues, *wink* *wink* I am going to cheer you up with this adorable card! I had so much fun play with a new stamp set I just got from Sweet Stamp Shop and few new sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Both of them are my new favorites now.
Water splashing technique has been my recent favorite and I can’t stop using it on multiple projects. This technique is not brand new and lots of people having been featuring it, but I love how it gives a nice background for cards every single time! This is a great technique to maximize your ink pads or markers. If you haven’t tried it yet, make sure to give it a chance and let it WOW you. Here I used Hero Arts’ Pale Tomato and Passion Flower Ink Pads to create a subtle background.
Don you just adore the hippo image I used here? I used the Too Hip stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop, this is one of the new release in February 2014. Nicole Rixon, the owner of SSS usually does pre-order on new release with discount codes on each month, so make sure to subscribe to their blog to get the latest and the greatest! (hint hint – March release is coming up shortly!) To color the hippo, I used Distress Marker by Tim Holtz and used Pumice Stone, Worn Lipstick, and Black Soot.
You really need to check out the sequins and embellishments that Paulina carries on her Pretty Pink Posh shop. These are high-quality products and a great value. Let her know I sent you! I used Marshmallow and Pink Blush to match the color scheme of the card, they really add a nice interest and finishing touch.
I hope you enjoy the video and make your Monday bright! Have an awesome week, I will be back tomorrow with a new product. Thanks for stopping by!
