from the heart

Hello crafty friends, Nicole here.

I was in the mood for one of my favorite stamps from Create A Smile :-) That turtle is just so cute, right?!

My cute turtle needed a happy fresh ocean. So I went for watercolors and that pretty "sophisticated shells" stamp. 

  • paint some watercolor on watercolor paper, I did several layers
  • let it dry
  • stamp the backgroundstamp over it with a sticky clear ink and add white embossing powder
  • stamp the turtle on watercolor paper as well by using a clear sticky ink and white embossing powder and color it with watercolors
  • stamp the greeting and assemble your card
  • decorate your card with clear drops that look like water and some glitter :-)

There's more than one way to add a water drop look on your cards. 
  1. You can glue on some "clear droplets" by Pretty Pink Posh.
  2. Use "Nuvo Crystal Drops - Mornig Dew" to add clear dimensional drops
  3. Take your "Glossy Accents - Clear" and add little dots. You will not get much dimension but the water drop look still works
I even added some glitter glue along the shell shapes to make my water sparkle.

There's still time to play along the current challenge! :-)

Have a happy and colorful day!
Thanks for stopping by
