Thanks for stopping by today! I got to play a little more with the NEW stamp set: You're Sublime. Such super cute images in this set! I showed you this one here– which I thought turned out cute, but now I'm not sure which one I think is cuter! 😉
I started this card with a base of Cucumber Crush, then I added a layer of Whisper White. On top of that, I added a layer of Soft Sky, which I embossed with the Chevron Textured Embossing Folder and then I rubbed the Soft Sky ink pad over the embossing to highlight the 'ripples'.
Then, on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, I stamped the frog with Tuxedo Black ink and once that was dry I 'watercolored' it with a Cucumber Crush Stampin' Write marker, an Aqua Painter and alcohol. (I rub the marker on an acrylic block and use the Aqua Painter to pick up some alcohol & then some of the marker from the block and start coloring. I explain this technique a bit here) I used the marker directly on the frog's spots to make them darker. I then cut out the frog and added some round Epoxy Accent Stickers to his eyes.
For the lily pad, I used the NEW Cotton Paper Assortment! I cut an oval shape from the Cucumber Crush cotton paper, cut a little snippet out with some scissors and then crumpled it.
For the lily pad flower, I actually decided to use the NEW Medium Star punch to cut out three stars from the Crushed Curry cotton paper, I crumpled each piece and then used glue dots to layer them to make the flower. I added a Pearl to the center to finish it off.
I adhered the lily pad to the Soft Sky layer using SNAIL adhesive and then used Stampin' Dimensionals to add the frog onto the lilypad.
I stamped the sentiment from You're Sublime and from Watercolor Wings onto Whisper White with Tuxedo Black ink and then punched them out with the Word Window punch.
Isn't he cute?! Here are the supplies I used on this card:
Tomorrow I will show you another card I made using this stamp set! It's the perfect one to kick off the summer!
